Only good morning Tehran irate well well what a wild. While the press conference. That was a press got asked to play the audio from it. Quentin Wright thing that we only. Entered officer and it. Glitzy. Get a fix it and hold on our surrogate. Why press coverage here we go. Donald Trump brand single exit depressed now renting and maybe I'm just telling you really dishonest people just tell won I won with news conference and probably speak just it's so important to the point. Public together and I expressed to press the public doesn't believe you people anymore. And he's not wrong now. They have a lower conference rating now than that congress that's 20% and this was happening well before his nomination well before his campaign. Well before he was elected. There has been an erosion in the confidence in me quite honestly the reason that Fox News is wary Diaz that so many Americans got so tired of the liberal slant. Of all that was going on an American Media and and those people who did not view the world as the left and the liberals did. We're looking for a different outlets where they did automatically assume that any Republican was just an idiot and moron. You know a knuckle dragging Neanderthal Bible thumping conservative. Do you think. This and the way that he handled this yesterday helps him or hurt him both. It does both our number one it. Basically what Donald Trump did what ever you think of Donald Trump solidified that opinion if you hate the guy you hated more today. If you're. If you love the guy you love him even more today because he's doing what it is that you sent him up there to do. Which is how we last week though the one thing about that and and this is the the feeling I came round a crosswind. This is the most honest press conference we've had from a politician in I don't know decades. Because you found out exactly. What Donald Trump thinks about everything he talked about yesterday. You know I I remember the press conferences of thought George W. Bush and he was kind of mealy mouth about some things and was trying to be politically correct the same thing for dawn of for a Barack Obama. He would get up there and men on and off and trying to purses words and say the politically correct thing and make sure that he's using the the specially. Crafted. Words that work you know was med focus group tested. And said exactly the way but he did and a professorial way not what Donald Trump it was like a shotgun approach to everything this is what I think this is what we're gonna do this is what I've done. I may not have always been right about everything he said there were some mistakes and some inaccuracies in some of the things he said. But you know that happens with every single person gets up there and and no speech from that podium. So how might it hurt him I'm curious so I just think they're so I just think that what it does it solidifies. The angst and the the insanity. That those who oppose his policies and his candidacy and his presidency. Other gonna use distance they seek Cink he's crazy he's not even a press conference this chaos this controversy this everything going on is just gonna amplify that and the media is gonna play along with a as they did the mainstream media did yesterday. You know. Immediately after that if you watched any of the evening news all of them were just you know rolling their eyes and all you know here this guy goes he's just diminishing and demeaning the press in our first amendment rights and I don't you think this is damaging to the country. I just think that it it hurts him but I don't think it hurt him any more than he's already been hurt by that because I think that you've got people who made up their mind about prompt. The countries met up its mind it's ready to move home. Those who are in a opposition to him and his policies and his candidacy and presidency are still going to be in the streets there's still going to be sued him in the courts they're still going to be saying that the nasty things about him on social media. Those who support him are gonna support him and wanna move on and and are tired of the obstructionism of what's going home. You know Leah go back and forth because. When George we bush took office. It didn't they waited you wouldn't. Run election for many years is if you were a Democrat you would try to get the presidential election be about education who. On if you're Republican you wanted to be about foreign policy Republicans were tested Carnoy and foreign policy and he left office. And it was a tie between Democrats and Republicans on foreign policy they forfeited an issue. I would just wanted to Q a's Republicans. You know ran and no one and that was from years of just not responding. And doing nothing to them and they're Republican brand itself in terms of just a brand of you know GOP Republican those words were at the lows that they had ever been. Al says that's when she gets. For not fighting back. As we know what you get for not right that we have no idea what you get for fighting exactly but we don't Alexander will enjoy to yards out and you know when to find out sim go under the bush route is is you know got adjusted doesn't work. Com and show you know has he gone too far I guess is the quest. I'd love to know on that for you 803471063. Text line 71307. Is one of these days where I really would like you to do to shout. Bombed it because I wanna see how these things hit you know how it hits me I can tell you that. But I don't know how it hits you you sit there are good you're laughing in your having your giggling have a good time Russian is and you think you're biting your nails going house is gonna hit is gonna hurt him long term. How is is gonna work out can he continue to do this for the American people get tired. And I think that that's kind of the question. And I have a question is and Dick days to go too far on this. Or is this America needs. Because we can really I mean he does his charms extreme east what you know what an extreme place in America. You know any good is this an equal and opposite reaction to really where we are in the country. What things he said yesterday. He's starting off for the mess and that the press is proof cooling that all look at the unemployment numbers yeah look at the true. Unemployment numbers if not both fake unemployment numbers that you guys have been talking about in the during the Barack Obama administration for the past eight years look at the true unemployment. Look at the true number of people who have full time jobs as opposed to those who have part time jobs and those who used to have full time jobs and have part time jobs now and what has happened to this economy because of obamacare. And the lies that you let the Obama administration get away where it. You know they sit here wanted to you know nitpick Donald Trump over to elect oral votes. What what about the fact that you have an administration that ran on obamacare claimed that there would be you'd get to keep your insurance keep your doctor keep her hospital keep your prescription plan. Rates are not gonna go up. Benefits gonna be better. Every bit of that was a lie. And the media never called him on it you have Fox News ship some of the conservative website ship some of the conservative talk show host who were actually willing to do that over the course of time. And toward the end of his administration. Yeah the press said maybe there are a few little problems here and they're virtually more people recovered now all we know they weren't. But leisure not counting the people who lost their coverage who used to have coverage who were now not getting coverage because they have a part time jobs out of a full time job. So just that the hypocrisy continues with a lot of the mainstream media and left us. Had you his house he referred again and again and again and again during a press conference to ratings. Yeah its ratings your rating on my worries about a New Orleans trump had better ratings on the apprentice. Then most of these CNN shares have. Yes he did an an intra watches rings he understands ratings has the world you an island into open and an end so indeed you know I think Trent is doing here and I think it is wildly ambitious I have no idea how it will turn out okay but Allen. When you look. Add the compliance. Influence level of each of these Alex CNN MSNBC. Break par old back. And you. On heat stroke is seen blood in the water with decent media news organizations. And he's trying to kill Hamas and when you look at. Who if you just pure out she pure numbers. Who'll on where doom the most Americans go in a month. Togetherness and all outlets fox. MSNBC CNN where it ago. There's an easy answer to that number one the New York Times website great it's it nearly fifty million unique page views number to bring our. They are far ahead of every of the media outlet in terms of people coming to their sites UT television station what ever take your act with them and China sees that. Tried absolutely sees that he's got Steve banning his White House when you look at is CNN. And some of their shows are pulling ratings levels of hundreds of thousands they're not even in the millions. Hundreds of thousands and the best rated stuff they guide is in the millions and fox is when you look at it. Yeah added a highest but only and you know 8000010 million. Range you don't meet important Debra Bart Poland 45 million unique views I am a week and what truck is due soon listen. Have earned the right. To be let's see it. I know and soon. And yet these people have this outsized influence on opinion in this country. You know they get to sit in the press box to get to see you know be in the White House court and try to enter ratings go up. These people there are are hitting way above where they deserve to be hit given the small size of their audiences and he's treatment and who got them those ratings. Trump did try to deal readings are up and CNN across I was little it was it was bad it was Brent about that debt that's a pure puncher and try. Yes and that's that's the point of trying to make here too as well. And just think if this had been an election Donald Trump could not Ron. Yes. Though the ratings for news the interest in the campaign would not have been to the level it was now it should have been because I think people should take very seriously. Who we elect to congress. Who we elect to the presidency. Should make it very seriously. But had trump not brawn. I don't think we have had nearly in the interest in the media ignored and the partly an end. And and there are any would've been a such a contentious Republican primary it would have been such a contentious no the general election in November. Halloween we might have had a Republican president we might have had Hillary Clinton I mean who knows that's unknowable. But the thing that I I do feel confident saying is that who do these news organizations would not have had the ratings they have had over the past months. And probably the years to come were it not for Donald Trump and I think he's taking ownership. Well yeah I think someone taking ownership of which you so he's doing with the press corps and it was much screaming about this week are great series hybrid for the president I could daily caller we you know what. He's sure to be unhappy day color. Is in the top 100 Websense in the entire country and I mean when compared against Google now Bank of America that their absolute new sports. On they are in terms of raw numbers it bigger knees forced and CNN. When you look at the numbers and rankings of the web site trap is trying to reconfigure the power structure of the national media to say listen. You guys are thought of as the legitimate everyone else is the alternate alternative their knees might not be so good he reconfigured that to say no but who's leveling the media field sing. Credit really daily caller every tech people are reading now. True actually true but there was a first person called on yesterday. Mara Liasson NPR.

When more that it when more Americans and this is it is page views more Americans. Are reading. These other media outlets are getting their news from the easy need outlets. And this is why Elvis and I to talk to the decisions Apple's Tim Cook mission but chilling what's going on this country I've been meaning to get into. It real freedom First Amendment suppression. Democrats though that's not afraid what ES at a press covers that's offers to members depression with Tim Cook said the candidate is.

Let's repression new zealots in America PCs said that twenty years ago. I'd apologize fear it C. But that's what's driving the wage from doing it these Contras but to press charges believe it or not there is math and logic. Behind it but enough about that the press conference H and the one everyone talked about yesterday weighty hearing coming up next. Sued B common sense retirement planning text so I LIN wood trump is re representing them beaten down wife to finally stands adore husband. He's the voice the silent try and upon thank god for trump. Terms like Carol. Like Carol. In the Washington's. In which she becomes you what's the you know and I'm talking about. Prince. That everyone should have been talking about.

The press conference everyone should've been talking about yesterday but they're not because of the at a press conference prompted everyone is talking about. When my talking about what press conference the two minute work. Anxiousness. Of this press conference yesterday. And turned it was the most terrifying thing it's Democrats have watched. All with us since probably he was an artery. What what what was it headed in this pose huge huge excuse me with a lot. Inmates. Trump came at Nick Cannon right at Obama. And he laid out how in the Obama administration has Obama promised. At the beginning. Of the Obama administration when he took office in 09 there were roughly a 170000 hold jobs in this country. Obama destroyed the coal industry. Intra way to set his feet. He talked about the O Bob Cole regulations that destroyed 83000. Coal jobs. Shuttered 400. Coal mines. And devastated. Dozens of communities financially. OK so trust dinner White House exodus from. And as he is laying waste. To Obama as cold regulations with his parent. TO is standing behind him this is what terror for the Democrats. I guarantee their freaking out of business. And that's why they haven't even assailed him for what he did yesterday. Normally they would commands so called dirty coal learning environment killing children did you hear that yesterday. No he didn't today don't even want edge brought your attention to this press conference. Because if you ordered to see what it was about you would see. Coal miners standing behind trump. From 34. Early Blue States that flips. In this election. And along so then UNC. The unions. The national coal mining union leaders standing behind trump was smiles on their faces. Cheering him on. As he undated. What Obama had done this is the press conference everyone should have been talking about history here's some of it. Are breaking news moments ago the White House president Charles signing a bill that prevents Obama air environmental regulations. From going into a back to. It should help protected being down coal industry the rules that could say the move more than half I'm the nation's coal reserves mom when it's too new lining up. Didn't think about. More cold than anyone else on earth. Being that yes. Let's then move. And you know and other countries they love that call here we. We have been treated it with the respect Jim says even for defense. Having that coal is a very important things for us. So I want to thank you all. This rule we're eliminating as it may just Reggie your jobs. We're going to get rid of that red and immediately we're going June fights feel like I promised I would in the campaign manual. Very good to me and I am maybe even better deal I promise you that. And we're going to fight for also low energy prices. For all Americans. As Cole went off line between 2001 and 2015. The average cost of a typical US energy bill home energy bill. A 33%. Miss a spirit of optimism rising across the country is going to continue to grow. Much as we shine more and more bills. We're gonna make our nation more than competitive not just competitive we're going to be more than competitive. And we are going to win that many many indices were already starting back with the automobile industry. We have the airline industry and the other day they have rules and regulations up by the time they get through it is nothing left. They have to get rid of a lot of jabs had a great meeting actually. We had the unions then we had the workers in we have a lot of people and moved there are all very excited about what's happening mother and I haven't looked yet at the stock market but it's been going up and record clubs we have a tremendous streak going on. And that's only because of the optimism they feel they optimism and then that optimism is creating a lot of jabs so it's an honor to have everybody would just say and in particular the miners move. We appreciate everything you've got to tell us thank you very. Now let's hear from the minors to tell about one of the miners say a few words I hear these guys are. I hear read don't Tino and these are just coal miners from Blue States. I start formally Blue States they were blue until this last election these eggs. Of these formerly Democrat endorsing Colin unions standing behind traps time and burn. I'm not like me. President Trevor thank you very much for everything he's done for us it hearings are going for our industry is really very much needed. Reminding him as an issue for forty years and mothers of these very exciting time for thank you very much. More fouls Virginia voted oh or did you learn mechanical problems. Are you OK are you guys. Miners after you. Slashing energy prices bringing bringing back jobs. Tying coal and our energy to defense. Yeah so almost Talking Heads on TV when he knew he just keeps having these contentious press conference is going to distract him he's distracted from any day. And next press coverage is less terrifying thing Democrats have seen since he took office. Those are their supporters standing behind him. Arrow I love it eleven by the way all of which are doing in the state. Yes. And I played as a victory lap I don't we're going on the guest expand playlist for you next because you know what you learned that you deserve. Impact. At Columbia on the Colombian roads cartel a say buddy next. Score one in it for you let's take it could victory leveled it back in a press conference in a minute. Do you wish you Jim what's your girls this. Think you realize the power you have to sit around frustration thinking you're just a little guy against Sony can but you can't. Discriminate. Are our current governor Henry McMaster. Six and half weeks ago and stay newspaper. There are taking a victory lap on the guest tactic. And reading that you don't Nikki Haley it was never clear she would veto that a gas tax taker nod since but now he's got Henry McMaster and so. Everyone in Colombia's excited to see you know today the gas has finally got fired that's what clump that's what the state newspaper was reporting. Almost seven weeks ago. Where they are reporting that was dreaming master and our governor not take public position on the gas tax but he had singled is signal to all these people that he was a thumbs up for. There is no way to. If Henry McMaster wasn't a slam dunk to sign it and you want seven weeks ago. She was a slam dunk. Other set at the state newspaper and then your phone calls started. Asserting hit the house they started to hit the governor's office but if you haven't called governor text the word go to the text line 71307. We'll send you DR number two called I'd call after nine. Well as certain that in nowhere. After Greece all this signaled it to Jay Lucas to surrender guest experts believe me the speaker would not be using his political capital on it. Only to look like a full Viet nasty governor he would step down if you know back son missing in veto it. And then your phone calls start. We don't act is a good week folks and you tell Henry McMaster is talking up if you think this is because EU. Well it is because he he did this listen. We will have to go home and die yet. I think to stay human is going have to going guy who's force injury. Things like Camellia avenue necessities. And then you have dessert moment expert. We're not being able to have deserves. Full while we've we've got to be very careful with how we spend money. And I and I'm hoping that if we combine all these approaches and also have them. A very. Careful what you know to be accountable with the Department of Transportation. And we Austin infrastructure. And how we spend money then I'm hoping that there will be enough. Phones for all of us to do what's necessary. Without praised the taxes. Okay now understands. This is a pasta seek. Though that this state chamber of commerce. The Greeneville chamber of commerce. The all all these unleash our issues business guys that Henry mastered this week collect a 160000 dollar. 160000 dollars in a single day from this is not the apron talking point different talking point is everyone's on the same page wrap it up when I mean gas tax hike. They are all way beyond its any debate over whether there's another way to do it. And whether we have enough money for Henry as he did he's a big political hit huge. I can imagine his his lines are lit up all right it's a since then go in WTH. And Jay Lucas burned his phone line down to the speaker of the house what women do I'm I'm yeah I'm I'm running this thing through the house I in my house members freaking out because they're getting hundreds of phone calls opening up state. And now they're afraid you and yet your waffling on this staying really my house members out there vote today's gas pedal and had you veto would not get a then they got a run in their primaries is gas high it as a tactic we do would. I'm telling you. That's what's going on behind the scenes at it why is ten army master doing is it cost him.
