tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  August 7, 2018 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT

5:00 pm
have a special election. danny o'connor the democrat is showing an early lead right now, 62.9% of the republican troy balderson, the president campaigned for him, 36.4%. that's it for us, i'm sandra smith and now, here's tucker. ♪ good evening everyone and welcome to tucker carlson tonight, i'm tammy bruce. like the early to thousands again, rosie o'donnell has been having another meltdown over donald trump. >> this guy is in no means mentally stable enough to run this country and he should be impeaching every congressman who hasn't filed those articles and they should lose their little job. >> tammy: and more that just ahead it, plus black lives matter crashing a police officer is own wedding. >> i just wanted to know if you started planning your wedding
5:01 pm
before you killed him or after, and i know this is supposed to be the happiest day of your lif life. >> tammy: but first tech companies are taking the lead in suppressing any voices that dissent against the left. in the past few days, apple, facebook, youtube, spotify and other companies have all banned alex jones from using their platforms. also twitter purged various libertarian accounts, instagram band tommy robinson and facebook took down a g.o.p. candidates ads for being allegedly offensive. chris murphy says mass censorship is needed to ensure "the survival of the democracy." i guess he doesn't realize the irony there. who is next? on msnbc some say the twitter d be in the president. >> trump has insulted someone via twitter at least 487 times. is there a point in which twitter says, this is a violation of our ethics, i'm going to shut you down?
5:02 pm
i think there probably is a rubicon he could cross but he hasn't crossed it yet. >> tammy: nigel faraj wants led the u.k. party and headed the brexit campaign is the issue, this is nothing new. we see this happening for quite some time, even diamond himself as a very good example on facebook. you have an op-ed in usa today and you have an interesting idea about how you can perhaps start to approach this kind of banding on this assault on conservative ideas. what do you have to say? >> mark zuckerberg has always claimed that the facebook was a platform for all ideas. fine. in doing that he set i'm not a publisher, just a means of putting out people's messages. what do you think about this? you may say this guy's a little bit out there but the point is he's got a big following and he has an opinion. if if you believe inflict free speech and your first amendment
5:03 pm
rights, people should be allowed to do this. i would say that by banning jones and by shadow banning many others, facebook and others are now effectively becoming a publisher, and that means because they are taking editorial decisions come they should be open to being sued as other media organizations are. >> tammy: now i would argue, we are all trying to find some balance here because we clearly see it's unfair and it ranges from congressman being shadow band, we are trying to find a free market, especially with the mainstream media being 85% liberal. we see that push. but we are the content and social media which gives us an edge. we would suggest though that some of the argument by twitter, they are saying that some of these comments violate standards. if we open it up to lawsuits for libel, wouldn't that make it even more difficult to have speech? wouldn't more people be banned
5:04 pm
and more people be suspended? >> no. if you are a platform for all ideas, you are not a part professional. on the one hand they claim, we are not open to libel because we let everybody give their opinio opinion. now in a very sinister way, they have a way of starting to ban and a shadow band people. for example on facebook, an organization that i have spoken for. i've been to their events. >> they do great work. >> they do amazing work. they are videos have been seen by tens of millions of people. they now on facebook have 88 of their videos that are now very much put to the back of the list. they are very hard to access including ones on christianity for goodness sake. so we have gone way beyond the bounds. what's needed now is a bill of rights for people using
5:05 pm
the internet. let's give people access, let's give people rights, and if we can't give that out, let's make sure that we would now redefine facebook, youtube and twitter as publishers who are liable as are fox news or "the wall street journal" or anyone else to the content they put out. >> tammy: we have to find a way to push back. one of the things we know here are that we are the content. our lives are so intertwined with twitter and facebook, social media and in general that's the new modern way to communicate. and they are private public companies, not a government and they can do as they please. i think the power is for example this conversation. we are able to have a point of
5:06 pm
view and everyone knows exactly what's going on because we are the content and we can at least push back and make a difference. nigel, thank you so much for joining me tonight, i appreciate it. great job. we have to be able to find some way to push back. she's a civil rights attorney and represents james to moore who was hired by google for his personal views. >> what do you think of nigel's proposal about holding social media accountable as publishers to where they would be liable on issues like defamation, et cetera? i feel that would be even more chilling because they are not the government obviously and they are not compelled by the first amendment to not act or to protect our rights. what's your take on how conservatives can push back on this regard? >> i agree with nigel, sorry,
5:07 pm
tammy. it's way fast like past time for us to do that. the social media companies are all hiding behind the communication of the decency act, section 2:30 which gives him safe harbor and immunity from being sued if they act as a platform, not as a publisher. the minute they become a publisher and sensor, like "newsweek" or whatever, that would be liable just like these publications. that's absolutely with their digital advertising sucking the life out of traditional journalism so traditional journalism outlets are on their last leg and teetering into extension. there are places where they can get sued if they have defamatio defamation, these other platforms cannot. so between their market power which i think it's something that the doj should look at with antitrust regulation, and with frankly their false advertising to being open to everybody,
5:08 pm
which twitter promises, facebook promises and youtube to a certain degree promises, although they don't pretend to do that anymore. they are violating the law. so i agree with you this is not a first amendment issue so much as a breach of contract and issue involving other regulations. some of the other things that conservatives can do is we need to have members of congress look at this communication and decency issues, but we already have government regulations in place. we have the federal trade commission, we have the federal communications commission and they could both take a hand looking at the uneven application of the rules to these different -- >> tammy: but i get very nervous, i'm not libertarian or even republican but when we start seeing -- and i think relations can be very good. we've seen that when it comes to the environment that the government does have a role, albeit a very limited ones. when we start talking about government agencies deciding who has to be heard and what must be
5:09 pm
done, i start thinking of things like the fairness doctrine which may talk radio impossible to have. i worry about again this notion of when you are dealing with private/public companies but not the government at the same time, and, they themselves, the market share and the value of them are bigger than some countries. apple i think we came for the first time the 1 billion traded company. are you not concerned about government involvement involve. where i think the content producers can help make the difference on that. >> of course i'm concerned. sometimes it is necessary. sometimes we have doctrines that require equal access to certain platforms. for example we have facebook censoring elizabeth paying's and
5:10 pm
when that democrat incumbent is not censored. that's an in-kind contribution by the platform to one side over the other, we can't have that in our system. i'm just saying why the current situation is like that. the other thing is that conservatives can fight back into the courts, and i'm afraid it's a little naive to say that. unfortunately you've had many years of american consumers acting like sheep. >> tammy: now we are in shame. we have to wrap it up now, i think this conversation is an indicator that things are changing and thank goodness for work like yours. thank you, i appreciate you joining us tonight. right now we are keeping an eye on ohio where there is a closely watched special election for a congressional seat. republican troy balderston is running against democrat danny o'connor for the 12th district seat.
5:11 pm
cook polls closed less than an r ago and we will bring you the results of that race when it's called. and coming up, rosie o'donnell back with another antitrust meltdown. it is something to behold, that's coming up next. and muscle pain. only aleve targets tough pain for up to 12 hours with just one pill. aleve back & muscle. all day strong. all day long. no mathere are over 10,000 allstate agents riding sweep. call one today. are you in good hands? this ijust listen. (vo) there's so much we want to show her.

5:13 pm
5:14 pm
>> let your voice be heard [cheers and applause] and let the president know that in no uncertain terms that we are alive, awake and we are woke. we are not going away. the more people that show up here eventually will take over all of d.c. and they will have no choice but what to resign.
5:15 pm
>> tammy: all righty, while that was obviously rosie o'donnell protesting outside of the white house. the president of course is in new jersey. along with a group of broadway performers. the hostility between rosie o'donnell and donald trump goes back decades but recently, she has inspired to new heights of derangement. yesterday she had a meltdown on msnbc. >> he should not be president and i don't believe he is a legitimate legitimate president. if not for russia he would have never won. he's a horrible human with no soul and has a serious mental disorder. there are so many psychiatrists getting out the duty to warn, this guy is in no means mentally stable enough to run this country and he should be impeached and every congressman who hasn't filed those articles should lose their job. be one you don't have to wonder where she stands. then she took her act to cnn and accuse supporters, you guys,
5:16 pm
some of you, of being paid to attend his rallies. >> first of all, he pays people to show up. >> right, but i don't know that that's why he gets tens of thousands at the rallies. i think he captures a lot of emotion for people. >> when did he get tens of thousands at rallies? >> not at tampa, there were only had 9,000 seats and there were people outside but i've seen him, he gets big groups of people. >> larry o'connor is the associate editor of the washington times. isn't it a sign of the continued detachment from reality to say that donald trump is paying supporters? in a way i want all democrats to think that because they don't really understand what's going on. what's your take on this return of hers and the very strange approach? >> i want to go one step further. i think every republican running
5:17 pm
for office in november should play this on an endless loop. it is a new level of derangement but also a lot of things that she was saying but patently offensive, not just trump supporters. but let's start with mental illness, rosie has been public about her own doubt with depression. i don't know if you've known anyone with a legitimate mental illness, one thing you don't do is accuse someone of having mental illness. it's obnoxious. she did the same thing with the president's son, baron, suggested that he had autism. it's so out-of-bounds and she's just a horrible human being. now she's rolling people out of the white house tammy, it's disconcerting. >> tammy: broadway especially. i live in new york and broadway is an industry that relies on the tourism of middle america.
5:18 pm
traveling to new york is a fabulous something to do. it is their audience. it seems to me, and the tickets are not cheap. we are asking americans to spend a lot of money to see them perform and i love the performers, i think they are terrific. but isn't this -- everyone has a right to be political but doesn't this harm, considering the nature of what we have been experiencing in america, doesn't this harm beyond rosie o'donnell, doesn't it kind of harm both their industry and the democratic party in general? >> i used to work in that industry before andrew breitbart discovered me. i used to work in the management business and i adore this industry and the art form. but, broadway lean so far to the left they have fallen over and they can't get up.
5:19 pm
they really are. i love the business but the fact is and rosie was just saying to her fellow broadway performers there at the protest, make sure the president knows you are alive. he knows you are alive but he also knows that all those people you're talking about regarding alive, the people from middle america who save their pennies and come to new york. when he sees what these performers think of him, what the industry thinks of him, they might go on a cruise next time. >> tammy: this is a point where sums -- at some stage, they may have a better idea like better tax cuts and paychecks. we all benefit from those things so maybe it's time to start focusing on that. larry, thank you for joining me tonight. there's plenty of derangement to go around these days. in hollywood, donald trump's hollywood walk of fame star has become a consistent vandalism target. there he is with a pickax.
5:20 pm
on msnbc, never trump republican became so worked up about trump that he began cursing and the general had to kill his audio feed. >> if there's a bigger trump move out there, there's just a huge deficit in this country. >> because of my past failures, and of course it happens every day, we would have implemented it seven seconds away so probably what you said will not make it out there. >> tammy: that's probably the best way to listen to rick wilson with silence. someone who i know and enjoy her commentary, kathy rew. this shows liberal sherpa, and we say that with all kinds of appreciation. she joins us now in studio. kathy, how are you doing? >> i'm doing good, how are you? >> it's a pleasure to sit across from you.
5:21 pm
you've seen everything we've seen, and rosie o'donnell get some attention, she's a performer. she used to be a comedian. i don't laugh when i hear from her anymore. >> not with these lines, no. >> would you agree this is helpful for the entertainment engine, industry and liberals in general? it's been almost a year and a half, isn't it time to say, let's find what we have in common. or is it all too early? >> this war has been going on for 12 years, it's very personal. when he was asked if he called one and pigs during the debate, he said only rosie o'donnell. so this person you have had a war with him for becomes president, and now she's not so funny anymore because she's so angry. reality stars are in congress. now there's one in the white house. so entertainment politics is mixing. >> tammy: what do you say though when it comes to their
5:22 pm
business that donald trump is having a better time than rosie o'donnell is or, anyone in hollywood at this point? >> it's a first amendment. they have the right to do this and donald trump was out there. he had the apprentice but he was still fighting with the birther movement. >> he did both. you know west hollywood just voted, not that they have a vote but they voted to demand the removal effectively of donald trump's star on the hollywood walk of fame. do you think it's stay there or should it go? >> he should pay for it just like everyone else. >> people don't know that, he did pay for that star. you buy the section, it's not awarded to you and it's free. everyone pays for it. >> he rightfully paid for it. but if it's becoming a problem, maybe they should be removed. maybe they need to remove the people to prison.
5:23 pm
>> no one should vandalize anything like that, that's his star. he earned it and he paid for it. >> you have a really great attitude. you are not letting the circumstances which you don't like ruin your life. she is laughing, this liberal is laughing. we have great conversations that don't make us miserable. wouldn't you say that -- or maybe you think it needs to continue, the current liberal attitude of all rage, all the time, especially from hollywood. do you think that's worn out by now or do you think that's really the thing that liberals in hollywood should be doing as continual perpetual outrage? >> i don't tickets all of them, but that's the whole point. i'm a liberal and i'm not losing my mind. i think both sides have extremes and both extremes are losing their minds. >> there you go, except for us. >> we are not to. >> right.
5:24 pm
now look, the black lives matter movement also has a new tactic. wedding crashing. we will show you their attack on a police officer's wedding, coming up next. that works at liquid speed. you'll ask... what pain? advil liqui-gels minis. i knew at that exact moment, whatever it takes, wherever i have to go...i'm beating this. my main focus was to find a team of doctors that work together. when a patient comes to ctca, they're meeting a team of physicians that specialize in the management of cancer. breast cancer treatment is continuing to evolve. and i would say that ctca
5:25 pm
is definitely on the cusp of those changes. patients can be overwhelmed ... we really focus on taking the time with each individual patient so they can choose the treatment appropriate for them. the care that ctca brings is the kind of care i've wanted for my patients. being able to spend time with them, have a whole team to look after them is fantastic. i empower women with choices. it's not just picking a surgeon. it's picking the care team, and feeling secure where you are. surround yourself with the team of breast cancer experts at cancer treatment centers of america. visit appointments available now.
5:26 pm
♪ ♪ i can do more to lower my a1c. because my body can still make its own insulin. and i take trulicity once a week to activate my body to release it, like it's supposed to. trulicity is not insulin. it comes in a once-weekly, truly easy-to-use pen. and it works 24/7. trulicity is an injection to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. don't use it as the first medicine to treat diabetes, or if you have type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you or your family

5:28 pm
12 districts seat. apple's closed about an hour ago and we will bring you the results of that race as soon as it's called. fed up with walking streets and occupying college campus buildings, black lives matter activists have a new tactic. one of the officers involved in a shooting death of stefan clark and sacramento, california, was a recently married. on his wedding day he had to confront invading activists. >> i just wondered if you started planning our wedding before you killed stuff on clark or after, and how you have been sleeping since march 18th, and i know this is the happiest day of your life but, -- we came here to drink wine and just -- murder of! >> tammy: robert, thanks for coming on. >> thanks for having me. >> tammy: for most of us that have seen that video, we understand the social mart
5:29 pm
argument. there needs to be justice reform. we know there are problems culturally that we have to deal with. this, though, transcends the line in that we wonder what it will really accomplish. what is your point of view? not really as a going to accomplish anything on the issues we are facing but it really is a provocative dynamic that changes this in a personal framework that people will turn away from what the real answers could be. what do you say to that? >> langston hughes once asked a question, what happens to a dream deferred? and for over a decade people have been arguing, fighting and marching for the idea of comprehensive criminal justice reform in america. those hands up, don't shoot, conservatives had an issue with it. when it was i can't breathe, conservatives had an issue with it. what exactly is a protest that these new visuals want people to have that will get them motivated on the issue of criminal justice reform?
5:30 pm
if we want the protesters to stop we need to have an actual congressional leadership. >> in the white house, on vaca trump and the president have talked about a need for justice reform. many black leaders and pastors have visited the president in the white house and they get attacked for talking with the president about policy and about moving forward with the issues. would you have a problem, would you go and meet with the president? do you have a problem with black activists and people at least within the black community who are leadership meeting with the president and you would think more productive a method? >> i've met with andrew johnson, and in 1856 a former slave owner to work out issues about the only way you would make progress is by meeting and talking and pushing through legislation.
5:31 pm
it was absolutely necessary getting senator glenn grassley to stop. >> tammy: this is about a conversation, about getting things done but american see on television this kind of action of people trying to ruin -- they were in disguise happiest day in his life. you realize you are not winning people, the conversation about things and they were all affected by the justice system. you have to admit that. >> unfortunately these are things in america they get attention. there's more attention on this story than there was with the 17 pastors meeting with president trump last week to push prison reform. >> what if -- and when it's with
5:32 pm
the community is that the democrats normally lay claim to it doesn't get coverage. they don't want to talk about the president having success instead, and this is what you should be upset about. the media reporting things that make activists communities look bad and then they play into it. isn't that something you should be speaking out against? >> if you look at the 1960s, the press clippings from them, they demonized the freedom riders, they demonized the outside agitators going into communities. there is never an acceptable way to protest until something gets done. i think congressional presidential leadership will -- >> tammy: the most known protester is dr. martin luther king jr. when media wants to cover something properly, they will. in this case i think we are all being taken for a ride. i love your position regarding the president and having an
5:33 pm
influence on policy. it was terrific to see you come thanks for joining us tonight. tucker is back after the break and he will talk to a democrat. he says the party has become far too obsessed with promoting abortion. that's coming up next. including nasal congestion, which most pills don't. and all from a gentle mist you can barely feel. flonase sensimist. where we're changing withs? contemporary make-overs. then, use the ultimate power handshake, the upper hander with a double palm grab. who has the upper hand now? start winning today. book now at that's the same thing ti want to do with you. it's an emotional thing to watch your child grow up and especially get behind the wheel. i want to keep you know, stacking up the memories and the miles and the years. he's gonna get mine but i'm gonna get a new one! oh yeah! he's gonna get mine but i'm gonna get a new one! when it's time for your old chevy truck to become their new chevy truck,

i'm ray and i quit smoking with chantix. i tried to quit smoking for years on my own. i couldn't do it. i needed help. for me, chantix worked. it did. chantix, along with support, helps you quit smoking. chantix, without a doubt, reduced my urge to smoke. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression

or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. i don't think about cigarettes anymore. talk to your doctor about chantix. >> tammy: since the retirement announcement of supreme court justice anthony kennedy, top democrats have made their support for unlimited abortion rights a major campaign issue. >> do we deserve civil rights in this country? do we get to decide what happens to our bodies? how many children we are going to have? >> generations from now our children and grandchildren will wonder, what did we do, what did we do when they were trying to take away a woman's right to control her own body. >> everyone who cares about saving roe vs. wade will make their voice heard. right?
5:38 pm
>> tammy: michael ware directed faith outreach efforts for the obama campaign in 2012. he just wrote an article morning that democrats are entirely too focused on abortion, and he recently spoke to tucker about that article. >> tucker: what did you mean when you said that, that they are too focused on abortion? >> while there is a range of implications of cavanaugh filling this seat, or concerns from a democratic policy perspective from immigration to voting rights to corporate power and workers protection, and yet out of the gate it looks like the only thing the supreme court was going to roll on was abortion. and you saw a major activist and even some democratic leaders say that the preeminent focus was on roe v. wade, which too many democratic voters and i think many americans, seems a bit off. certainly if you are pro-choice, you have a right to ask
5:39 pm
questions and press cavanaugh on that but it seems to be a bit out of perspective for me. >> that seems to be a theme though, i think there are plenty of people who think under certain circumstances, abortion ought to be legal. i imagine there are some circumstances where it ought to be allowed but not on board with abortions for selection or third trimester abortion. there ought to be common sense limits on it but that's not the position of the party anymore. >> the party has moved quite a bit on this issue but it's been a relatively recent move. it used to be that democratic party throughout the party, people called for abortion to be safe, legal and rare. barack obama called as president for the number of abortions to be reduced. we saw the abortion rate in this country to reach its all-time
5:40 pm
low. it wasn't too long ago that you had democrats that had a bit more of a humble approach to the issue of abortion. but something changed. in 2018, and instead of saying that abortion should be safe, legal and rare, but she actually and extended a case for late-term abortion. we also saw in 2016 the democratic party platform for the first time and repeal of the hyde amendment which bans federal funding for abortion. these aren't long-standing positions and they don't need to be positions the party carries forward. and the democrats are out of power in so many cases. >> there's something tragic about it and a moral dimension to it no matter where you are in
5:41 pm
the spectrum. why not just admit that. abortion doesn't make you happy, we don't want a lot of abortions. if you said that today i would think you'd be disqualified in the democratic primary. >> if that's true then barack obama would have to be disqualified. he would call abortion a tragic issue and again, he spoke repeatedly to his desire to see abortions reduced. but it does -- there is an activists portion of the party where frankly, democratic victory seemed to be secondary to them as long as party leaders take the most unapologetic approach to this issue as possible. and i think we've seen the cost of that. we see the cost of that in president trump, we seen someone like senator pat toomey, and my hope is a democrat might be that the party would not take that approach in 2018.
5:42 pm
>> tammy: you can see tucker's full interview with michael ware on the tucker carlson tonight facebook page. coming up, the president's twitter feud with lebron james as liberals once again called trump a racist. crabfest is back at red lobster, with our largest variety of crab all year! like new crabfest combo. your one chance to have new jumbo snow crab with tender dungeness crab. or try crab lover's dream. but hurry in.

(sighing) oh dear. thank goodness zerowater's five-stage filter gets to all zeroes the first time. so, maybe it's time to upgrade. get more out of your water. get zerowater. get more out of your water. but i am a simple farmer.bas! my life is here...

5:47 pm
>> these are no longer at dog whistles, these are fog coins. >> people of color who are attacked by their fellow citizens who feel emboldened to be publicly racist because the president is. welcome aboard, great to be sitting across the table from you. this is kind of nice and normally if you were talking to tucker you would be in a box with a satellite but here we are in the studio. you are a young african-american woman and we hear you talking to people about racism, we know racism exists. but this man has improved the quality of life for african-americans, everybody having more money in their pocket and that really adds to personal freedom. what is your reaction to this kind of response, the president has said to a lot of people that they are dumb, white and black. >> the left has this operating under a very bizarre assumption
5:48 pm
