tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News May 7, 2018 11:00pm-12:00am PDT
wow! >> i think republicans should pay close attention. maybe wear the t shirts to make a point. that's all of the time we have left. busy. we'll always be fair and balances let's not your heart be troubled. i wanted 10 hours. >> need another two hours. lawyer everything is always breaking during your show or my show. >> every night. people are begging for a new stick. >> smart and funny. then don't have to worry about it. how about a martini glass. we will l have a different drink everywe night. >> tuck it is so funny. people say you're like brother and sister. >> yeah, kinda. >> we have been fighting for only 20 years. pass me the stupid football. pass it touchdown handity.
have a great show. >> laura: good evening. i'm laura ingraham. this is the ing report. why are the media so obsessed with john mccain's funeral plans. plus the kanye effect is growing. a pastour is calling on african-americans to consider how illegal immigration is damaging their community. he'll join us, and breaking just moments ago. a powerful new york democrat forced to resign after shocking allegations of assault. we'll bring you all the details. but first, three women, one double standard. that's the focus of tonight's "angle." >> today the first lady announced her formal agenda for
the remainder of her husband's time in office. her "be best" initiative will focus on the well-being of children. both on-line and off. tackling opioid addition, suicide, depression, and cyberbullying. >> social media can be both positively and negatively affect our children. too often it is used in negative ways. when children learn positive, on-line behaviours early on, social media can effect positive change. >> laura: fantastic. but, of course, cnn, couldn't let the first lady have her moment. >> her husband has been known to be a name caller on twitter and talk aggressively in twitter. she addressed it with the president sitting there in the front row. i think what she's saying there she will do this in spite of her husband's tweets. maybe because of his behaviour.
let's focus on the next generation. these kids getting bullied and facing serious issues in social media. going forward nog oc matter whae does. >> laura: she was doing it as an tack on her husband. that is ridiculous. let me get this straight. michelle obama was celebrated for the let's move initiative. melania trump effort is treated skeptically before it began. yesterday the washington post used the occasion to speculate on thehe trump's private relationship, including their sleeping arrange%. or whether a they spend much tie together at all. the obscene rumor mongering continued at today's white house briefing. >> there are persistent rumours that mrs. trump does not live in this white house. and that she lives with her parents somewhere in the suburbs. what do you make of the rumours?
>> i make of the fact just when you think the washington post can't get things any more wrong, they do. and that is an outrageous and ridiculous claim.. >> now, i remember michelle obama being lauded for having different priorities from her husband. and for being a strong, independent woman. b but now that the trump occupy the white house, the press takes every opportunity to t define te first lady only through what they view as her husband's shortcomings.as >> she wakes up in her own bedroom. not something we normally see. she doesn'tt eat with the president.ee and she really lives a life similar to a lot of moms out there. >> president trump and first lady are living essentially separate lives is the subject of a major "washington post." the white house dismissed it as tabloid gossip. >> trump goes for the kiss and-- oh. saved by the hat! >> that is more than a hat. that is a defensive perimeter.
>> laura: gosh, i wish we had a funny late night comedian. except for a brief moment during the lewinsky affair, i don't recall this grantulear relationship coverage when bill and hillary clinton were in the white house. now, if you want to know why the media has trained its sites on the first lady. it's simple. she's a real asset to the president and her popularity is soaring. a newewse cnn poll shows her favorability has gone from 47% in january to 57% today. she has jumped 15 percentage points with democrats. imagine if wee had a fair press. melania trump is also a presidential spouse. let's face t who brushes off the celebrity culture and avoids politics. where michelle wanted to retool everything from nutrition guidelines to school lunches and hillary wanted to remake all of
healthcare. melania just wants to help kids well-being, and also to raise her son now that, brings me to the media coverage of president trump's nominee to head the cia. if confirmed she'll be the first woman to ever lead that male-dominate ad agency. she is a patriot. she served the agency for 33 years. most ofor it undercover. so, why won't the left cheer her for breaking the glass ceiling? you know why, because killing offf her nomination would hurt trump. and because she carried out her duty, as instructed. >> the white house is standing by their cia pick despite reports she tried to back outlast weekk and despite her history with water boarding. >> why support her given the refusal to declassify critical information about the tape that she reportedly wiped. her support for u.s. torture
after 9/11. the fact that she headed up a secret u.s. detention camp in thailand. that someone was water boarded there, under her watch. >> laura: all the truth is. havel oversaw detention facility in thailand in 2002 where a few al qaeda operatives were water boarded but made it sound like she vinted technique. she did not. it was authorized by george w bush and approved by his legal team, who briefed congress on it. there was further static about havel being involved as you heard with the destruction of 100 tapes of interrogation a declassified review shows she did not order the tape's destruction. her superior did and with good reason. the anti-trump bullies almost drove havel to withdraw her nomination, but she's holding firm. good for her.
those vilifying her are desspicable. i am very disappointed in rand paul for opposing her nomination as well. but the media has found one woman with a trump connection to actually collude. it is a woman they literally roll out the red carpet for. porn star stormy daniels. >> stop o making a big deal. everyone knows it is just an ac. >> i work in adult films we're not really known for our acting. >> just tell me, what do you need for this all to go away? >> a resignation. >> her star is rising as the result of allon of this. you know by not depending himself. saying it is part of a maximum pr campaign. maximum pressure campaign to gets whatever stormy daniels wants. >> laura: so, you see stormy has been elevated by cultural, political and now the prosecutorialial establishment.
now, it is amazing to watch the media disparage and attack women of real substance. while they allowed a woman, who spent most of her time hanging off of a poll half or completely naked. [applause] a porn star, who has already signed a detailed letter, by the way, stating she had no affair with donald trump. now she's changed her story to sellas tickets to her strip act. her greatest accomplishment may be stripping the mueller investigation of all credibility. so let the media applaud their darling of the moment. she's a good representative of what they have become. but for america. we will stick with substance and truly independent women and that's "the angle." joining me now for reaction in new york. is tammie bruce, who is the president ofid the "independent woman voices" and fox news contributour. cathy arue. a liberal analyst and publisher
of cat lina magazine ask onset. anita mcbride.ri the chief of staff to first lady laura bush. great toou have all of you stro, independent, women of substance on the show. i want to start with you aknita. i was so angered by, what first of all they have done to melania from the beginning. ridicule. talking about how she's in prison. that's the free melania. and rolls out the new initiative. it is dismissed and denigrated before it beginnings. double standard in. >> absolutely. i think it is great, number one you are covering this. she is a woman of substance. i have to say, there's no question in my mind why the polls are in her favour. people are beginning to see a lot more of her. she is beautifully represented us overseas, as a graceful and gracious first lady. her first state dinner was flawless. and also, we know we've seen her
with children. she's authentic with children. she cares about them. you can see it. it is perfect neshtive to talk about how i we should all, everyone that touches the life of a child has a responsibility to help them lead a better life. that's what she talk about today. >> laura: cathy i wouldn't to go to you. i haveec been hearing so much fm women, more left of centre women. that it is time for women. it isha the woman's moment. it is the me too moment. and the sniderrerman later and the me too movement. and women breaking glass ceilings. it is a good thing. here we have the first lady, who has not really developed into politic. it is all new to her. it takes a while to get her footing. she announces this initiative today. andce what she has introduced wh by the washington post is a story filled with a anonymous sources. claiming to know when the president and
the first lady eat together. not eat together and in the white house briefing room saying she doesn't live at the white house. don't you thing we would know if the first lady didn't live at the white house? your reaction for this. >> i wrote for the "washington post" for a decade. we had great sources. many why anonymous and solid sources i stand by the "washington post" and their reporting. the problem. the irony she's going after cyberbullies. that's her initiative and her husband is known as a cyberbullly. i think that's the problem with her initiative. it just so happens the day she does it he's tweeting angry tweets. so, it is unfortunate, because she is trying to do the right thing with the initiative. and. >> laura: it is unfortunate that. okay. it is unfortunate. it's unfortunate. okay. michelle did the "let's move." initiative. shee got congress, frankly. really put the pressure on congress to push this $5 billion
initiative for school lunches. the thing was a total disaster. kids hated the lunches and threw them away and made videos about them. you can get in on this. did you ever hear a member of the media criticize michelle for a school lunch initiative that was well intentioned i'm sure it was. we havee to get rid of obesity. that's good. on the substance not even criticism. it is pushup on "ellen" and the cover of 50 million magazines and most beautiful. that's fine. but come on. there's a double standard. it is pathetic. i'm enraged. i think it is so unfair. >> look it was the media was quiet. talk radio and the blog sphere and the town hall of america talked about it, because it was those families and kids were coming home and were not getting nutrition it. became a negative problem. and then, even when we recognized this, there was a refusal to adjust it. and so, you know that became. look.
she was involved in policy a powerful advocate and usually, if you implement something that doesn't work. you might want to change it. there was none of that. here what we have got. even recently, mrs. obama complained again about women, who voted for donald trump. >> laura: let's listen to that we have this. i want to play it for all three of you. >> in light of this last election, i'm'm concerned abouts as women and how we think about ourselves and about each other. >> what is going on in her heads, when we let that happen? you know? so i do wonder. what are young girls dreaming about, if we're still there. >> laura: this is one more example of-- of liberal women denigrating the choicesde of conservative women. so if we decide donald trump is the right person for the country at thehe time. a lot of different republicannan
choices then we'reff stupid. we're acting against self interests. we're dumb. i guess we're sexist. >> it is michelle obama comment, no oneme will say it i'll say i. it is offensive to women, who agree with her liberal, leftist world view. >> it is offensive to women who would like to see a women president. but they want to see the right woman president. we'llre have that some time in r lifetime. this was not the right time. this wasas not the right person. didn't care about or project the issues that americans, a lot of women, like you and i care about. w that was first and foremost. >> if: i may chime in as a feminist and worked in this line for most of my adult life it is supposed to be about and we achieve this. women thinking for themselves making choices best for themselves and their families and now w that is being denigrated. this should be celebrated that women are making the choice based on what's good for them, not based on what an
establishment or the celebrity or a political celebrity is telling them to do. and this is what's damaging. i think with what thank goodness american women are rejecting. the notion that we are, in fact respect for ourselves and when, mrs. obama wonders what are we thinking. we're thinking about the future. we're thinking if we can afford to pay the rent. if we can clothe our children. if we can get children into schools to serve them best. with donald trump, we clearly made the right decision. so this is now what the modern feminist movement is about. it has got to be embraced. fortunately it is with the trump in office. >> laura: we pro-choice accepts in politics i guess. speaking of>> double standards i want you to react. asta i said the new york state attorney general democrat eric sniderman has resigned it comes explosives after an report from the "new yorker" magazine, where four women accused him of horrific accounts
of physical abuse. despite his resignation. he is denying the ackization, but he's been a champion of the me too movement. earlier this year he denounced harvey weinstein. saying we have never seen anything as desspicable, as what we've seen here. cathy. i believe he's the guy that goes after the trump foundation, if my memory serves me correct. this can't be a fun night for any democrat. we had kristen saluting him as the leader for women's issue. i just sent out a tweet. follow me. you'll see the comment from her. yourom reaction. >> i think it is all of. if this is r true, it is truly l of. he was a rising star in the democratic party. this is all of. if it is true, if it is in fact true. no woman can stand behind this. no feminist can stand behind this. i can't stand behind this. it is sad. it is a horrible day for the me
too movement. it is a horrible day for women, men. everyone. politicians, the democratic party, everyone involved. it is all of news. i don't think anyone likes to hear that this happened. >> laura: look, i am actually going to say, if allegeses are true. i think we should all say that he's not convicted in the court of law. i wish people would preface everything they say about donald trump in the same way. if these allegeses are true. if everyone just it is true, because stormy daniels has a guest spot on "saturday night live." here's a couple of tweets. ile let the other women respond. no one is above the law. i willaw continue to remind president trump and the every day. without the reporting of the new york times and "new yorker" and the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they endured at the hands of powerful men, there would not be the critical national reckoning underway. tammie bruce, national. >> it is typical.
lookbr all of these liberal men. they clothe themselves in the cloak of feminism. and weinstein did the same thing. bill clinton was doing the same thing. it is all about we're your protectors andnd advocates. that kept them safe. this is about power. it isfe about complete control. and with the reporting again is true. it is not about sexual harassment but physical violence. and perhaps even some crimes and the dynamic now in new york will be very complicated. this is not unusual. it sits within the same kind of template that we saw with weinstein. and everyone else in this framework. and i think liberals have to think about what is it about men on that side. i'm still a registered democrat in california. what is it. is it that they have given them a pass for so long, because they have had power. they say we will effectively we will do this, but we will protect you otherwise. and that otherwise, the entire narrative of the liberal agenda
will collapse, if you don't fromtect us. it is falling a part it. will not end. >> laura: it is not just democrats. it cuts across party lines. >> not as much. >> laura: not of a the high profile people. but we've all seen the more left-leaning media over the years look the other way. i heard about that weinstein thing 20 years ago. and i think a lot of people knew about that. and aknita, the sniderman is one of the most antitrump people. hitting him at every temperature. even about consensual relationships your reaction? >> i think he is right about one thing. no one is above the law and the law will play out. >> laura: great panel. independent, smart, strong, women. i love it. thank you all. and bob mueller is suddenly on the defense, after the special council's very bad week in court and andy mccarthy breaks down the explosive details and what to expect next. coming up i'
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... that's just one less thing you have to worry about. i couldn't imagine going anywhere else. they're like a friend of the family. we are the cochran family, and we'll be usaa members for life. save by bundling usaa home and auto insurance. get a quote today.
oh hi sweetie, i just want to show you something. xfinity mobile: find my phone. [ phone rings ] look at you. this tech stuff is easy. [ whirring sound ] you want a cookie? it's a drone! i know. find your phone easily with the xfinity voice remote. one more way comcast is working to fit into your life, not the other way around. >> laura: we now know that the fbi didn't believe that michael flynn lied to agents during his interview about conversation was ththe russian ambassador to the united states but the special council prosecuted form national security advisor for making
false statements to the fbi anyway. that dupe playsty was revealed friday when key redaxes were removed from the house intel report on the russian house investigation. to tell us why it matters and what it means from new york. it is former federal prosecutor andy mccarthy. andy. this is so wild. why these redaxes are being done. the justification for continuing to remove critical exskulltory information from these documents. tell the fox viewers what they need to understand about this tonight. >> well, it is really outrageous the way it was done. it was on friday night that they dumped out this, the unredactions of what they had previously redacted. what we learn, when you compared the two documents once we got new passages shown, what they had tried to conceal was the information that was exsculpttory in nature about
flynn and the information that went to their decision-making process. including howow they investigatd flynn. the fact that they couldn't get their stories straightet about what the basis of considering him to be a criminal suspect were. and it just really-- very depressing for somebody who is proud of you know having come from the justice department and working there for such a long time. some of the stuff they held back was actually public information that was out already. but they didn't want to put it in the context that it came up in the report, because it calls intot question the prosecution f flynn. >> yeah, so. from the beginning one could then surmises that the screws were turned on flynn after he had those conversations with the russian ambassador. i think he was allowed to have conversations his national security advisor. he rushes over to his office. the acting attorney general. he bringsis a couple of agents. i'll answercl questions.
he didn't even have a lawyer present. my understanding he just sat down andt. answered questions. >> here's why it is so bad laura. if you want to have, they say they're pursuing a counter intelligence investigation. youu have a guy like flynn who has a big intelligence background. he's a combat veteran of the united states. actually wrote a book in 2016 that labeled russia as an enemy of the united states. and so, if you really want to advance w your intelligence knowledge and you have a recording of flynn's conversation with the russian ambassador. what you would do is play the recording for flynn and ask him, what did this mean. what did that mean to enhance your understanding. what they d instead is ask him questions about a conversation-- . >> laura: he already had they already knew about it. >> what reason is there for that, other than to get him to trip up. >> laura: we'll gets to elliss comment how the mueller investigators have been operating in a moment i want to play a flash back from
when jim comey sat down and what he was asked the specific question about mike flynn. let's watch. >> the lawmakers that fbi agents didn't believe michael flynn was lying intentionally to investigators? y no. you did not? >> no, i don't know maybe someone misunderstood something i said. i didn't believe that i debuted say that. >> laura: what about that, andy? >> i guess to split hairs, if you were inclined to do that. what he said, and they quoted in the report. is that the agents didn't detect any physical signs of someone who was trying to-- . >> laura: to -- >> right, like how many angels on the head of the pin to split those hairs. >> laura: devon nunez is the hot and bothered about the fact that he can't get documents or they're redacted for.
seemingly no, good reason. so he has basically threatened jeff sessions, the attorney general, withh contempt, if it doesn't start coming over to the hill. a sessions said, i'm willing to sit down with him. got his attention. the white house apparently through mark shores, the domestic policy advisor say we stand. we're supportive of our cabinet members. joaquin castro the congressman from texas was on cnn. let's watch what he said. >> this probably wouldn't be happening, unless the white house somehow gave its blessing to go around and somehow punish jeff sessions through the congress. >> your experience of nunez. he ever do anything that goes against what the white house wants? >> no, i think at this point. not at this point. for a while now he's basically been someone who is doing the white house's bidding. >> laura: i wanted to scream out. objection, leading.
from bulletser. that's an anchor asking's question. don't you think trump is a. your reaction. it is always barbing nunez. he's the boogie man. meanwhile they don't go to the substance of the problem. >> it is remarkable that, you know nunez i think is actually doing the work of the people, in terms of someone having a check on what's gone on in these investigations. it is appropriate that be investigated. it is just remarkable to me. right as t we're looking at this report that has he's redactions that are so ridiculous that even the justice department can't just them. that's why they put them out. you have to wonder everything else they're withholding. consider are they withholding it. they're attack nunez. you think they would attack the people holding back the documents. the oneum fair criticism they make. ultimately the president is in charge of the executive branch and he's got to do, to my mind he's got to do a lot more than tweet he's ing gry there's not
enough cooperation. i think he needs to give people orders tope cooperate. >> laura: the judge ellis the district of columbia. a no-nonsense judge. reagan appointee. he put. he was pretty adamant on friday with the special council's office. it seemsou like. they don't really care about man for. they want to usese him to get trump. your reaction to that factbaing and forth. saying people are exaggerating the importance of what happened one friday. >> they may bee exaggerating the importance, in the sense i don't think the case against manforewill disappear, even if the judge were to strike the indictment. i don't think he's about to do that. but my main reaction is that i'm glad that finally the questions that we've been asking for a year about the special council's jurisdiction. about the noncompliance of the justice department with the
regulateion in choosing him about the way this investigation has been convicted from soup to nuts. they've been able to ignore the peanut gallery. this is a federal judge who is asking the same hard questions. they have to deal with them. >> everyone reads andy great piece in "national review" about the redaction. document mess. thank you so much. up next how john mccain's 11th hour trump barbing is exposing the media as two-faced opportunists. stay there.
♪ >> laura: ailing john mcca >> laura: ailing john mccain is the media favourite republican. now that he propertiedly does not want president trump at his funeral and wishes he hasn't picked sarah palin as his running mate in 2008. mccain's fondness for the media hasn't always been a two-way street. they have routinely trashed him
when it suits their own purposes in 2006 headline entitled "john mccain the sellout express." the huffington post called him a pandering politician who will stop at nothing to be elected. mccain's great sin? agreeing to speak at jerry fallwell liberty university. the are not a piece entitled "mccain the sellout." based on the fear that the candidate might govern as a conservative. in 2010 "vanity fair" headlined the man that never was. mccain is called so desperate to keep his senate seat. he repudiated hits record, principles and even his maverick reputation. entrenching himself as the anti-obama. we're hear toen talk about mcca. the man is james h. warner. a pow with him during the vietnam war. he was a pow for six years and
also my old colleague in the reagan administration. a former policy advisor to president reagan and frank luntz who show how the media use mccain to fit whatever narrative they find convenient. it is great to see t both of yo. jim, i want to talk to you. first great to see you. longt time. i was young. you were even more handsome back then in 1987 sharing an office together. >> before i got took on the appearance of a homeless man. >> laura: it is all cool here. jim, look. you have better than anyone know the experience that john mccain had in vietnam. you've known it for a long, long time. i know you haven't seen him for a while. does it surprise you he at the end decided he was going to make his funeral plans and make it explicit trump was not to be there? >> yes, it does. but i don't know how far advanced this cancer is. but i know that i was told that it is very aggressive.
and to say the things like he did about sarah palin. look i was with him-- i warmed up an audience for him the day after the convention in a little-- a big rally north of detroit.bi he tried to introduce me as sarah palin. we couldn't get near her, because she was just mobbed by people. he was there at the convention when he introduced her. he saw the electricity. i'll tell you how it affected us. we were t up in the booth. my left to i was sitting next to bud day. the most decorated american war hero. and bud had tears in his eyes. he was so moved. and that'sas what the effect she has. so fort him to be doing that. i'm not going to hold anything against john t for what he saysn the last year. you know i don't know how much this disease has affected him. but the john i know was one of
the greatest heros i ever knew. one of the finest men i ever knew.es >> laura: frank, it is interesting to go back and see those headlines from all of the elet publications john mccain the sellout. john mccain the phony fraud. now he's hitting trump and. you know he's obviously been-- at odds with trump on a number of policies immigration, foreign policy. trade to name a few. now-- not just because i think he's obviously suffering terribly. i have lost three friends to gleeo blastoma. a horrific disease. you see the ebb and flow of their relationship. >> it happened in 2000, when he is running against w. it happened in 2008 with mitt romney. this is nothing new. and john mccain understood how to use the press to his own advantage. it is one of the reasons why he's such a good politician. by the way i want you to know not as sit next to you and frankly i feel the way about any of these men. they suffered.
truly suffered in prisoner of war. and donald trump, i don't know if you remember, who i was asking inn questions in iowa. hes actually-- it was my interview when he said john mccain is not a war hero. he opted that back later on. but mccain and the press. it seems like a pretty good relationship. >> laura: this is what s.c. cuff said today i believe it is cnn. >> he is not a sellout. and i think having president trump just because he's the president come speak on his behalf or ologies or memorialize him would be selling out. senator mccain i say not just as his daughter's best friend, but as a republican, who supported him, senator mccain is everything that president trump is not. >> i would say that someone should have told donald trump before he said that about john. john was hit and ejected and his
airplane just disintegrated. one of the wings came off. as soon as his shoot opened. it broke the wing, swung around broke both of his arms and one of his legs. so i don't know how he was able to open up his may west, much less how he could swim. i have no ideas how he survived in the lake. i know he could not have possibly done any resistance. he wason helpless for several weeksev after that bud day had to take care of him. bud day had to feed him. >> laura: could you hear him, whenim you were at hanoi hilton? >> i lived with him for two years. >> you were separated. you were there for six years. you were separated for a long time. >> yeah, and in '71-- there was a big up rising among us. and john mccain-- even though bud day was the senior man in his cell. john mccain was credited with being the leader of that.
and in fact, on march 19 they took 36 of us out. we honestly thought we were being taken out to be executed. and john mccain made a joke about it. a man who can volunteer to die for religious freedom. that's what it was. and make a joke about it is really-- a top guy in my. i hold him almost the same status as james stockdale. >> laura: you know to just hear these stories, frank. >> they said to him. go home. but because he wasn't in the, in terms of being captured. so they beat him for it. and those that are critical of him, because they don't like how he has voted on certain issues who among us in this stud yes, would give our legs, ours arms ourr body, our lives. >> laura: he also said at one time. i was a pow, but we candies agree. there are a lot john
kerry he served his country proudly and won the bronze star. but we disagreed with him on issues. it is okay to disagree. you disagree with him on a lot of issues. i assume you wouldn't disinvite trump to his funeral. that's his decision. but theo media are playing this cynically. that's what i'm saying. they're playing it. when he's with the conservatives running for re-election. he's strong on immigration. they were hitting him. but when he's hitting trump-- different deal. >> i hope that he is still alive. i hope he still gets a chance to see in the end in so many areas, so many areas, not all that he was right. he was courageous, and in the end there was someone we can say tome our children that is a role model and think how few role model vez today. >> i don't like what they said about sarah t palin. i don't think it is necessary. if you don't want trump to be at your funeral. you can make it known. i don't think you have to write it in the book. and. look. you everyone can do what they
want. there's a way to get that message out. >> but we should not judge him. >> what he is saying right now. i can't. it is i don't know how much that disease has affected him. i know it is the frontal lobes. that's where you think. >> laura: by the way. jim, when-- because you showed me this book. you wrote a cal culous book. is that right. >> annuallytic geometry. >> laura: you should have made the white g house. ihe still don't understand contt cullous. writing this while akill prisonf war. 100 pages. i tell that story all the time. >> actually it is now in the marine corp archives. >> laura: of course it is. you are amazing. i love you. i adore you. frank. thank you for being with us. great conversation. god bless john mccain and his entire family. it is a brutal disease. we need to find a cure for all
cancers. will trump finally kilauea the iran deal? victor davidsis hansen tell us next. so to breathe better, i go with anoro. ♪ go your own way copd tries to say, "go this way." i say, "i'll go my own way, with anoro." ♪ go your own way once-daily anoro contains two medicines called bronchodilators that work together to significantly improve lung function all day and all night. anoro is not for asthma. it contains a type of medicine that increases risk of death in people with asthma. the risk is unknown in copd. anoro won't replace rescue inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than once a day. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition, high blood pressure, glaucoma, prostate, bladder, or urinary problems. these may worsen with anoro. call your doctor if you have worsened breathing, chest pain, mouth or tongue swelling, problems urinating, vision changes,

>> coming up empty or the process? we did not lose ground overnight and will not a have a deal overnight either? >> i think it is part of the art of the t deal negotiation stylef trump. and trump, when he came into office, i think everyone realized there's an asymetry with china whether it is patent infromment or copyright or aappropriation and cyberwear fare, that theory if we were to give these concessions to china in the 80s we would bring them into the family of nations. and their affluence and economic boom would make them democratize and a helpful player on the world scene. that has been revealed to be played. i think it is thematic of a lot of the iran deal, the open borders, the nato contributions that we thought what was normal really wasn't. it is predicate that had we were so strong and powerful. we could always make concessions
in 2016 the people in between the coast said you know we don't want to make concessions because we're not as powerful. at a least we aren't and afflue, as you people who create these deals. there's a d domestic-political element in all of these negotiations that trump has to be careful. >> laura: ian, it is interesting to see how trump has shifted the debate on china. i was going back and googling trump was right on china. like financial times. marco rubio's way over probably to the right of trump on china and now it is t pretty much commonly thought. china is cheating on a whole host of issues. they're stealing a lot of our intellectual property and poised to eclipse the united states on, in a lot of different ways, unless we recalibrate, at least the playing field. where do things stand? then we'll move to the iran deal? >> they are moreo powerful. there a larger economy. their ability to promote their own companies, because they're not becoming a free marketci.
it is making it much harder for the americans to have access. trump has been hitting them on theth technology side. that's where we don't have a lot ofde interdependence and where t will be more challenging on trade. they want to export. we want to import from them. it is a lot of our companies manufacturing and exporting the united states. i don't think that the headline is going to lead to a trade war. i think both sides will end up negotiating.g. >> laura: let's go to you on the issue of the iran deal. a big decision tomorrow. here's a headline from the telegraph. "if trump scrapped the iran nuclear agreement why so they make the own deal with america" it the wisdom it will be pad for north korean negotiations you could make the other argument it. shows that trump will not sign on to a deal that he views as not in our interest or the interests of our middle eastern allies your reaction? >> i agree. i agree with the latter
interpretation. north korea will get a message. if it is not shutical it will not stand the test of time. more importantly we shouldn't be here. that should have been a treaty and while it did not have the votes on the congress, the senate. so he went around them. and the sad thing about it. they were bleeding about 125 to $150 billion from the really tough sanctions i give the obama administration credit for finally ratcheting it up. over the life of the first 10 the and additional five years they will have about $500 billion that they wouldn't have had. it will destroy syria. it will shoot missiles into saudi arabia. it is going for hezbollah. it wasn't more than six months after this treaty. b they were shooting a missile at the uss truman. they hijacked an american boat and they humiliated people. it didn't have the added effect of effecting their missile program or their behaviour
and i don't think that they will be able to produce any nuclear weapons in that 10-year period, because they had civil unrest and their economy is ruined. now they have a green light in 10 years. i think they will take advantage of it. >> laura: where doesan it stand tonight. >> two things i would say. the first is that we know that all of the america's allies in europe strongly oppose the united states by ourselves. the french and the german leaders were here asking trump to give them some time. to try to come up what would be a tougher deal against the iranians. if i was advising trump. may 1 is your deadline. say you listened to the allies give them two more months. if they don't come up with anything else youdo say it is their fault. yout' listened to the allies and have the ability to blame them if they give you something better you're a hero and have better credibility in iran. trump never brings up the one thing americans care about, not the middle east they want oil prices down. this deal is keeping them down
whether minorities should continue toon tow the democratic partiy line. bishop shines argues a politics piece that african-americans are being taught to fear president trump and ignore the adverse impact illegal immigration has had on their community. he's the bishop of glory to glory ministries and joins us from tampa, florida. it is great to see. you. >> thanks, laura you on kanye. you know it is a column published "washington post" about kanye from columnist danielle wiggins. kanye is wrong. freean thinking not blind loyaly drew black voters to the democrat partiy. who he touts an individualist notion of freedom his fellow black persons are voting with their eye towards freedom for all americans. something he sadly doesn't seem to understand. your reaction to that? >> well, first of all, laura i'm glad to be with you this evening. while i don't necessarily share
all of the massageny that kanye as put out in the past. i'm glad he's had an epiphany. guys like myself, we've been doing this. this is is not our first rodeo i am glad he had the epiphany when i hear about the freedom from people hike "post" and superleft leaning organization it is pretty insulting. the real reason is because the democratic partiy has always been the party that has really kind of kept blacks on the planttation. they were the ones that gave them thehe kkk. they arene the ones that gave yu slavery. they are the ones that gave you the jim crow laws. i'm glad there's a dialogue. if kanye is part of that conduit. i'm glad to hear that as well. i'm glad this dialogue is finally happening. just outside of individuals like myself that have been doing this for a while. >> laura: you have been doing it for decades. i wantin to talk about illegal immigration. you were hot on the issue.
obama in 2006 in the add dasy of hope i heighted the immigration as hurting the african-american community and depressing wages. well, we won't bother people with the passage. we don't have time. but he makes the point that the huge influx of cheap labour hurt the poorest communities. now black america is supposed to be aye, open borders. it is madness. madness. >> well, it is madness. this is what's so aggravating to me. it is not that blacks m my opinion, adhering to it. it is those stations that are constantly pushing and feeding that narrative to blacks. here's theve reality. obama said it. it was cool to say it. now that trump is basically saying almost identical, the same, exact thing what has cnn done? they kind of painted him as a racist. he is not a racist. this guy has done more for blacks in america. especially as it relates to the unemployment.
my god, if one would just look at the numbers. you can see it yourself. black unemployment, hispanic unemployment. it is at its lowest levels ever. we're actually having a dialogue in america, as to what the borders are doing. i tell you what they're doing? they're killing our poor white and black people in our inner cities, because drugs are constantly flowing in. and it is not just jobs. >> laura: it has got to end. we will have you back. >> of course. >> laura: we will have you back bishop stein. thank you for your perspective we have a lot more to get to. don't go away.
