tv Happening Now FOX News June 1, 2018 8:00am-9:00am PDT
trump's remarks at the u.s. coast guard. he will have his salute down there. nice to be with you, heather. >> have a great weekend. >> you are wearing warrior yellow. have an awesome weekend. see you monday, bye-bye. >> julie: we're awaiting remarks from president trump as he prepares for a rare visit from a senior north korean official, hello, everyone. i'm julie banderas. >> i'm rick leventhal. the president is about to speak at a coast guard ceremony. it becomes before a north korean official delivering a letter to president trump from kim jong-un. they were meeting with mike pompeo in order to get a trump/kim summit back on track. pompeo is optimistic but there is still work to be done. >> he either surprised or frightened or deterred by moments where it looks like
there are challenges and difficulties, things that can't be bridged. our mission is to bridge them so we can achieve this historic outcome. >> let's go to john roberts. >> good morning. there is a chance we may hear more from the president about north korea at the coast guard change of command. clearly coast guard is homeland security, north korea fits into homeland and national security as well. he has the big meeting, the whole thing begins at 1:00 this afternoon. the president will be meeting with mike pompeo, the secretary of state first, and then the way it will probably happen after that is that pompeo will bring in kim yong chol, the man he has been meeting with the last couple days. kim yong chol will hand the letter from kim jong-un and we'll see where it goes from there. this meeting likely will not take place in the overal office. they're reserved for dignitaries who are allies of the united states, sometimes adversaries but north korea falls into a different category. it is quite likely this will
happen in a room other than the oval office. you see pictures of mike pompeo together with kim yong chol. they spent and evening and morning together and pompeo said things went very well. listen here. >> we've made real progress in the last 72 hours towards setting the conditions. the conditions are putting president trump and chairman kim jong-un in a place where we think there could be real progress made by the two of them meeting. it does no good if there is a place of no real opportunity. >> no official announcement the summit is back on. the white house is proceeding as if it is and that it will happen june 12. the white house has two teams in the east asia region. one in singapore, one at the dmz and making good progress toward a summit. an interesting road to get here. the president had the strident language, a war of words with kim jong-un that a lot of
critics said they thought would ignite a nuclear war. the president called me when i was in hanoi last november and said john, all these critics saying i want to start a nuclear war, what i'm really trying to do is prevent a nuclear war. after a combination of that strong rhetoric and maximum pressure with sanctions, north korea looks like it is not a direct route to the negotiating table at this moment. the secretary of state telling kim yong chol yesterday that north korea has a lot to gain if it makes a deem with the president tweeting potus has made it clear if kim jong-un denuclearizes there is a clear path. the president is under no illusions that the thing could fall apart. the last time a high ranking north korean official was at the white house was 2,000. vice marshall to kim jong il back in those days.
that precipitated a trip by madeleine albright, the secretary of state to pyongyang, which yielded absolutely nothing. so there is a very real chance that could happen again today. but the president holding out hope that at least it will lead to a sit-down between him and kim jong-un. >> 18 years. rare times and fascinating insight. thanks very much. >> julie: fox news alert. a new report raising questions whether former deputy f.b.i. director andrew mccabe could face criminal charges. the "washington post" reporting federal investigators recently interviewed former f.b.i. director james comey as part of a probe into whether mccabe lied to investigators reviewing the f.b.i.'s probe of hillary clinton's email server. i'm joined by the "wall street journal" board member and fox news contributor. it is very interesting that james comey was interviewed. part of the probe and questioning of comey was to determine whether andrew
mccabe, his former deputy, had committed a crime by lying to federal agents. so is mccabe about to be charged criminally? >> we don't know. i think people should be very reassured that comey has been interviewed, that prosecutors are being so thorough in going through this. because look, julie, a lot of americans, they worry that there has been two standards of justice in the country. andrew mccabe has very much tried to make this sound as though this is his critics trying to undermine him, the mueller probe, in fact what this is is trying to hold the same standard. you have a criminal referral from the inspector general. he did a thorough investigation. now prosecutors are following up and seeing if there is anything to those accusations. >> julie: there is a lot to it. the question is, is there going to be charges. we don't know but lying we do know to the f.b.i. is a crime.
mccabe was not forthcoming if regard to handling the f.b.i. probe and also misled investigators and comey about a media disclosure and authorization. mccabe said he didn't intentionally mislead anyone. does he have evidence to back that up? >> that's going to be one of the questions they're looking at. they'll look at comey's credibility, by the way. at least some of that referral was based on comey's claims that mccabe had not been honest to him. so that's a he said/he said event. prosecutors will be evaluating that. >> julie: all right. then about the statement he issued after he was fired because i think the credibility factor comes in here. he said at the time this attack on my credibility is just one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally but to taint the f.b.i., law enforcement and intelligence professionals more generally. it's not just mccabe's credibility in question here. it is the f.b.i.'s after its
former director james comey leaked information to the press. >> think about how many people have been put in jail by the f.b.i. for lying to them, whether those people intentionally lied or not. that's not necessarily the standard. and we have so much evidence at the moment of bad judgment by the f.b.i. in 2016 when it comes to the fisa warrant it obtained, to the leaks that came out. and there is very good reason for people to be looking into the f.b.i.'s conduct and holding people accountable to the same standards everyone else is held to. >> julie: i also want to ask before i let you go about your "wall street journal" piece. you raise an interesting question, many of them, on papadopoulos's role in starting the f.b.i.'s probe into russian election interference. what are you saying? >> well, i think there are two important things we now know that i put in the column. one, we never really understood
how information about that papadopoulos meeting with alexander downer, the ambassador to the u.k. made its way to the f.b.i. we discovered it didn't go through usual intelligence channels but rather it ran through the u.s. embassy in britain which means that it was in the possession of the obama state department. that raises a lot of important questions about whether or not politics was involved in any way in pushing this information on the f.b.i. i think the other thing that is important is we now have an account from alexander downer himself saying he didn't necessarily pass along to the f.b.i. anything about what papadopoulos said in terms of emails. he just said the guy had said he had some damaging information. that the russians might have damaging information on hillary clinton. that's important because the f.b.i. has said that they were alarmed that papadopoulos might have known about these emails before anyone else did.
it doesn't sound like he talked about that at all. >> julie: this morning the president tweeted the a.p. report evidence the russian hoax investigation has cost our government over $17 million and going up fast. no collusion except by the democrats. your reaction? >> there has been no proof so far. we've been doing it for 18 months. numerous congressional committees. inspector generals are looking into it. probes by mr. mueller. no one yet has proud public evidence of collusion between the campaign and russia. at a certain point everyone in america is owed an end to this and some answers. >> julie: thank you very much. have a great weekend. >> after an intense three-day manhunt the accused killer of a sheriff's deputy finally caught. plus president trump considering more pardons as some leading democrats question his motives behind the moves. karl rove will be here to weigh in.
today's senior living communities have never been better, with amazing amenities like movie theaters, exercise rooms and swimming pools, public cafes, bars and bistros even pet care services. and there's never been an easier way to get great advice. a place for mom is a free service that pairs you with a local advisor to help you sort through your options and find a perfect place. a place for mom. you know your family we know senior living. together we'll make the right choice.
>> julie: fox news alert and just in a few moments we'll hear from the president of the united states. he will be speaking at the u.s. coast guard change of command ceremony, i'm told the department of homeland security secretary nielsen has prepared some remarks and introducing the president and then we'll be hearing from president trump. when that happens we'll take you to it live. so just a few minutes away. >> this was a vindictive political hit that was aimed at putting me out of business essentially making -- destroying my credibility. making it impossible for me to make movies, write books. in that sense it failed but it still left a cloud over me. i would have the life long felon. never be able to vote and have my full rights. i'm very grateful to president trump for giving me my rights back.
>> that is denish d'souza, he was pardoned yesterday by president trump. the president said is also considering a pardon for martha stewart and commuting a prison sentence of former illinois governor of rod blagojevich. some democrats claim the president's actions are politically motivated. karl rove joins me now. thank you for being with us. i want to get back to a tweet from senator mark warner from yesterday. he said the president's ad hoc use of the pardon power is concerning enough but the possibility that he may also be sending a message to witnesses in a criminal investigation into his campaign is extremely dangerous. in the united states of america no one is above the law. your reaction to that tweet. >> i think it's a little over the top. article 2, section 2 of the constitution does give the president of the united states a virtually unlimited power to grant repraoefshs and pardons for any offense except those connected with impeachment. it is a broad power.
like any virtually unlimited power we ought to be cautious about it. the president going forward needs to be cautious about it. criticizing him for the use of this power also ought to be -- people ought to be cautious about it. take a look at one of his recent pardons. denish d'souza was found guilty of making multiple contributions in the name of others to a candidate, personal friend running for the u.s. senate. when people make multiple donations typically what happens if those are discovered they're charged, they are fined, but in denish's case they sent him to jail. very unusual. i don't know of a single other case where this happened including ones where the sums of money were much, much larger. so the president might have said look, this was handled with far more -- larger pen amount -- penalty than it
should have. scooter libby, think about him whom the president granted a pardon to earlier this year. between the time that scooter libby was found guilty and today we found out the following. first of all, the main witness against him realized she had been deliberately misled by the special prosecutors office and driven in a direction of giving misleading testimony and she recanted her testimony. the d.c. bar association had the committee look at the incident and recommended that his law license be reinstituted. a huge rebuke to the special prosecutor. there was a miscarriage of justice and the president is well served >> every president issues pardons. clinton 396. fdl 3,000. it is often political, is it not? >> yes. you have to be careful about it.
take the enormous criticism that president clinton got over the last-minute pardon to mark rich who had fled the country for financial crimes whose wife was a major democratic fundraiser who had given tremendous amounts of money to the clinton efforts and in the closing moments of his time in office he granted a pardon. there was no support in the justice department or in the prosecutorial community. the president would have the same problem with blagojevich who was sent to prison for requesting a $50,000 contribution before he would approve an expense to a hospital on whose board the donor sat. so the president needs to be careful about this. there needs to be a justification for this. this needs to be a process. there needs to be support within the department of justice and inside his counsel's office and a reasonable explanation this is being done for good reason and good cause. >> we appreciate your time. >> julie: let's listen to the president addressing the coast
guard in washington [applause] >> president trump: thank you very much, secretary nielsen. great job you are doing. it was a wonderful introduction and your leadership as the coast guard's service secretary has been very much appreciated and respected. thank you very much, great job. thank you as well to our great vice president, mike pence. please stand up, mike. [applause] for joining us today. i'm thrilled to be here with the brave men and women of the united states coast guard. you are america's first line of defense. the best of the best. these are exciting times for
america. we are being respected again. we're being respected abroad. and we are restoring our wealth at home. it is about time. [applause] we have reached yet one more historic milestone with 3.8% unemployment just announced and another all-time record low african-american unemployment, hispanic unemployment at an all-time low in history. we're very honored by that. and by way, for the women out there, the lowest unemployment in 19 years. [applause] and i'll be soon saying that will be in history also very soon. that won't take much longer. we're honored to be joined for
today's ceremony by director coates, dan coates. where is dan? thank you, dan. director alice, senior military leaders, general did you know ford, admiral richardson and others. these are serious, proud, incredible people. please stand up. great people. thank you. [applause] incredible people. we're gathered together today for a truly special occasion. we are here to mark a change in command of the united states coast guard and celebrate the
incredible career of its 25th commandant admiral paul zukoft. [applause] great job. he has his family here. they are very proud and they should be. paul, i have to tell you on behalf of the american people, i thank you for a lifetime of noble service, congratulations on everything you have achieved. for nearly half a century, 45 years paul has proudly worn the coast guard uniform. that's a long time. you don't look that old. 45 years? [applause] 45 years. how good does he look? 45 years. must be something awfully good happening in the coast guard. in that time he has led every kind of mission and he has never backed down ever, ever,
ever. he has never lost a challenge. for the past four years admiral has led his brand and this brand of the united states armed forces as commandant and he has led with extraordinary skill and devotion and pride. today we also thank paul's wife, fran, for her own service over the years, including as a devoted mentor and representative for military families. fran, please stand up. thank you, fran. [cheering and applause] i hate to tell you this, paul, but she got a bigger hand than
all of us, including me. i don't know if i'm happy about this, paul. [laughter] thank you, fran. and fran, we're grateful for everything you've done to advance the coast guard mission. it has been a lot. we're also joined by the admiral's mother, marge, his brother, eric, sister, karen, son, brett, daughter, heidi and granddaughters stella and alen. stand up, family, come on. [applause] paul is very proud of you. thank you for supporting him in his mission and bringing so much joy into his life. throughout the admiral's tenure, he poured his heart and soul into the service of our nation. and he brought remarkable vision to the task of ensuring
the coast guard's rightful place at the forefront of the american security and prosperity. everyone here today understands a crucial fact. america is safe because our coast guard is strong. [applause] and last season during the hurricanes i was in texas, i was in florida and in puerto rico, i saw the work that you did under the most adverse conditions and i've said this to a lot of people. i don't think any brand has gained more momentum or has gained for of anything than the brand of the united states coast guard. people have tremendous respect for the united states coast guard. [applause] right? i've told you that before. you are the elite force that
defends our borders, patrols our waters, protects our cities and keeps our enemies at bay. paul sharpened the coast guard's focus on the western hemisphere, a crucial legacy that will long outlive paul's tenure. this includes greater emphasis on drug interdiction and the formation of historic partnerships to stop this deadly poison -- that's what it is, poison -- from reaching our shores and destroying our youth and others. paul also worked tirelessly to protect america's interest in the arctic. his leadership helped launch the arctic coast guard forum and he made a top priority to ensure the united states military can project american might all the way to the poles. one of the first times i met the admiral last year i asked
him what do you need? he replied sir, we need ice breakers and we need them badly. now you are getting them. [applause] and to be specific i'm pleased to report the coast guard is on course to receive its first new heavy ice breaker in more than 40 years and plenty other ships and boats and equipment and everything you need. our new budget, just passed, $700 billion this year, $716 billion next year. you are going to be very well taken care of. you will have to split that with a few others. we're splitting it up a little bit but that's a lot. never been anything like it.
you'll have the greatest equipment in the world and we make the greatest equipment in the world right here in the united states. we are committed to a military and security budget that funds and recognizes the coast guard's vital role. there is no better investment than giving you the tools you need to keep drugs, criminals, and terrorists out of our country. [applause] commandant admiral, also spearheaded a new coast guard cyber strategy, so important. and he was at the forefront. he recognizes that we must harden our industry, ports and waterways against cyber intrusion. paul's stellar record of achievement is a testament to his talent and to his leadership, but it is also a testament to the amazing talent of our coast guard men and
women who carry out their missions with excellence every single day. you chase down our enemies, track down our adversaries, and face down our greatest threats. nobody like you. you secure our borders against traffickers, smugglers, criminals, some of the worst people anywhere on earth, and we feel secure. and through driving winds and pounding rain and thundering seas, the coast guard is always there doing what it does best, saving lives. in last year's historic hurricane season, our coast guard, heroes they are, saved almost 12,000 american lives in that short period. it is an unbelievable number when you think of it. an unbelievable number, 12,000. [applause]
and i got a little education. i asked the admiral when that big monster is coming in, in this case to texas, and it was coming in, they've never seen a water dump like that in history. in terms of water coming down and it would come in and go out three times, four times, there has never been anything like it. and his guys and gals, they just followed that thing back and forth and you were all over it. i said how dangerous is it? he said sir, you don't want to know. i said can the boats ever go down? we have great equipment. can the boats ever go down? and he said yes, sir. and that was when i decided i won't be joining the coast guard. he said they go down no matter how good you build them, they can go down with those big, powerful waves. great job. it was an incredible job you did. thank you. [applause]
many service members left their own homes and families to plunge out of helicopters, wade through perilous waters, care for the wounded and rescue the stranded, of which there were many. your selfless courage has earned the gratitude of our nation. with this ceremony we proudly pass the helm of the united states coast guard to the man who oversaw those emergency operations, admiral carl schultz. admiral. stand up, admiral. [cheering and applause] as commander of the coast guard, atlantic area, admiral schultz took responsibility for the coast guard response across the gulf coast, the atlantic and the caribbean.
i have complete confidence that carl will carry out his new mission with the same talent, strength and devotion that have characterized his entire career. he has had an incredible and very brave but an incredible career. carl, we congratulate you and we thank you for answering this call to service. [applause] we also thank your entire family for undertaking this journey with you. we are glad to be joined today by the admiral's wife, dawn, his mother, elizabeth, daughters kelsey, lindsey, and analyce and sons eric and zachary. thank you very much. stand up. [applause]
as we observe this change in command, it is a great moment not just for the coast guard, but for our entire nation. the coast guard record is unsurpassed anywhere in the world from the courage of your heroes, who man the landing craft in the south pacific, to the legendary prowess of your pilots to the astonishing feats of your rescue swimmers. your service makes all of america proud. we're proud of the coast guard. more so today, i will tell you, more so today than ever before. [applause]
and for that reason, america knows that we can always count on the coast guard because the coast guard is always ready. [applause] now admiral, will you please step forward so we can formally recognize your accomplishments? >> military members, attention to award. citation to accompany the award of the homeland security distinguished service medal, gold star to admiral paul. he is cited for extraordinary service to the government of the united states in a position of great responsibility as the 25th commandant of the united states coast guard from may 2014 to may 2018.
leading the 88,000 active duty reserve, civilian and auxiliary volunteers and the department of homeland's security's only armed force he transformed the organization's focus to best meet our nation's interests and submit their services standing as the world's premier coast guard. his strategic intent supported by plans including the western hemisphere, arctic, cyber and human capital strategies and national objectives galvanized effort and yielded incredible results. under his leadership the service enhanced international partnerships and surged assets to extend the maritime border and combat violent criminal organizations threatening regional stability. advanced the services cyber
capabilities with national effect, and earned a clean financial audit. a masterful communicator he shared the services value and garnered advocacy across the spectrum of congressional stakeholders culminating in funding to recapitalize cutter fleets with new offshore patrol cutters, polarize breakers and waterways commerce cutters and accelerate the repair of shore infrastructure damage. proving his convictions that assets are hollow without people. in 2017, the admiral and partner agencies served 3,000 coast guard men and women who saved 12,000 americans and restored our waterway system in the wake of one of the most catastrophic hurricane seasons on record. his leadership, dedication, and devotion to duty are commended
and in keeping with the tradition of the united states coast guard and the department of homeland security. given this first day of june 2018, signed the honorable kristjen nielsen, secretary of homeland security. [applause] >> julie: standing ovation. what an iconic moment having the president stand to your left and listening to talk about two admirals in the post guard. he is at the change of command
ceremony and he thanked the admiral recognizing him for his 45 years in the coast guard. he will retire after this and there you have it
welcoming in the new commandant. secretary nielsen announced the nomination by president trump in march and again the retired admiral -- kudos to the coast guard. my sister was in the coast guard. it is an amazing branch of our military. congratulations. >> absolutely to the admiral and to the new commandant. reports from north korea indicate that kim jong-un has not changed his stance on denuclearization as one of his top aides heads to the white house today to hand deliver a letter to president trump. so what does this all mean for a potential june 12th summit? fox news senior strategic analyst and four star general jack keane joins us now. good morning. the initial reports were that
kim had agreed to denuclearization which is a key point in all of this. has he changed his stance now? >> he may never have really changed his stance in the sense he never really did agree to denuclearization despite the fact he was saying it. the dramatic thing that took place here after the may 8th meeting with president xi he stopped talking about denuclearization and started talking down what was taking place. china had some impact on him. the summit got canceled by the president because he thought kim jong-un was changing his policy, rightfully so. now we're back moving towards a summit largely because the north koreans are trying to convince us that one, they want to have the summit and two, they are willing to make some accommodations to us. but if you listen closely to what secretary pompeo said. he said he made big progress. he said challenges and differences remain.
that tells me that he clearly has not -- kim jong-un has not agreed or his envoys with the president's position. those differences likely are significant. >> we keep hearing we have to be skeptical of k*im's regime. how do you negotiate with a lack of trust? >> that's a challenge that all previous presidents have faced with a regime that lies and cheats and has always manipulated. i have to give this administration credit for taking this on. maximum pressure economically, the threat of military options, and getting three resolutions out of the u.n. they're dealing with thugs and killers before and it's the reality of it. it is the right thing to do to try to get these nuclear weapons out of the hands voluntarily. if that doesn't happen we'll take them from them. that's where we're heading. >> the other big question, if there is a no nuke pact with
north korea would it be enforceible? >> what secretary pompeo and our diplomats are trying to do and in the negotiations is just that. first is what they have to get -- this is what they have to get. they have to get them to identify all of their nuclear weapons that they have and we're not certain about how many they have. and where they are located and their storage sites and fuel sites and research sites. they have to give us all of that. then we have to put in play with them a process to verify that they are disarming and dismantling and we have to be there to watch it with other inspectors. the united states has to be in it. we can't turn it over to the iaea who gets manipulated regularly by our adversaries. it's tough going. >> you think the north koreans have far more at stake than we do? >> yeah. he knows he needs some relief here. he has economic pressure on him
and he has the potential of a military option coming where he loses everything. but that doesn't mean that he will not try to manipulate and get the best negotiated deal out of this he possibly can. i don't expect much from this letter at 1:00. i think it's just his willingness to go to the summit. i would be stunned if he makes any major concession in that letter. >> we appreciate your insight. thank you for being with us today. >> julie: it's all the buzz on social media still. samantha bee apologizing for her vulgar comment about ivanka trump. is that enough? why some conservatives say there is a double standard.
if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, or psoriatic arthritis, little things can be a big deal. that's why there's otezla. otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats differently. for psoriasis, 75% clearer skin is achievable with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques.
and for psoriatic arthritis, otezla is proven to reduce joint swelling, tenderness, and pain. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. otezla may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. tell your doctor if these occur. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. other side effects include upper respiratory tract infection and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ♪ otezla. show more of you. >> julie: samantha bee is apologizing for a vulgar remark she made about ivanka trump on her show. she said i would like to sincerely apologize to ivanka trump and my viewers for using
an expletive to describe her last night. it was inexcusable. i crossed a line and deeply regretted it. tbs has said this: let's bring in our panel now, bureau chief for talk media news larry o'connor a radio host. also an associate opinion editor at the washington times. thank you for talking to us today. all right. where do we start? larry, much like roseanne did samantha bee apologized but unlike roseanne she still has the job. are there different rules for americans based on their politics ?ao >> if we say what we want and alienate an audience we'll be out of a job because there isn't an awed yen.
there is a set of rules if you're on the right side of gun control and abortion like samantha bee is you can apologize and everything gets swept under the rug. last night at an awards ceremony she seemed indignant she had to apologize. she is politically on the right side of the issues. roseanne apologized deleted the tweet done on a twitter feed. this was broadcast on tbs with producers and writers signing off on it. it is much more egregious. >> julie: remind me of kathy griffin hanging a mock severed head of the president of the united states. she came out with a tearful apology and took it back. do you see a double standard? >> i do see a double standard. however -- i actually think as my mother used the say what's good for the goose is good for the gander. i think we should be equal. however, i have to say it starts at the top and president trump has allowed people to say negative things about each other and i don't think that's
okay. >> julie: first go ahead. i know you have something to say. >> to bring this back to donald trump. so it's donald trump's fault that samantha bee called his daughter the c word and suggested she had an an affair with him? come on, ellen. we've known each other a long time. everything in this country isn't donald trump's fault. can't she take responsibility for what she did? >> she should take responsibility. i don't disagree with you. however, it starts at the top. i have found that people are nasty to each other in ways that never happened when i was growing up. >> julie: of course. the times have changed but maybe people need to become a little thicker skined or maybe people should be treated equally. way -- i want to throw up a tweet by fox news contributor ari fleischer.
you will see a double standard in action. no uprising against bee, why? she's liberal. the mainstream media protects obama and his aides but not trump. the hypocrisy is sickening. tbs apologized. it is our fault, too. it is the producer's fault. where is the accountability? unlike roseanne's producers they couldn't have seen this coming. she has a show airs that is scripted. this was not caught beforehand. in other words, they did it on purpose. >> well first of all i love ari fleischer i want to say that. i don't disagree that we should be fair to both sides. however, again, we have got to stop the nastiness in this country because i see it everywhere. and it has got to stop whether it be from the liberal side or the conservative side. >> julie: some liberals like kathy griffin.
sally field. keith oelber man, they have come to bee's defense. you mentioned this in an article you wrote recently that i found interesting where you point the finger at the hillary clinton email fiasco and how it resonates with americans when it comes to how those in the democratic party are treated differently. >> the idea of justice in this country has been such an overriding principle that we hold onto from the revolution that we don't have two sets of rules. that people have to follow the same kind of rules and everyone will be treated equally. if you look at the hillary clinton email fiasco and what we're learning how the d.o.j. and f.b.i. treated her versus treating the trump campaign there is a feeling among many people in the country there are two sets of rules. if you are a progressive liberal establishment democrat like hillary clinton, you skate even though you broke the law by any objective matter. if you're donald trump and you have somebody in your campaign that the f.b.i. is curious about, suddenly you get spied
upon in an unprecedented way. i think this actually resonates in the same way. if you are samantha bee you apologize and all is forgiven and you get an award. if you're roseanne you tweet something and apologize and you are out on your butt and it doesn't square with what people in america expect. >> i just want to say i'm not sure the spied on donald trump and not sure about that in any way, shape or form. >> on his campaign. i'll explain off the air. >> julie: when we're not talking about samantha bee. ellen and larry, great to see you both. have a great weekend. >> rick: the white house imposing new tariffs on some of our biggest allies. why some are worried a potential trade war is coming next.
