Overtime: Chris Christie, Eric Idle, Natasha Bertrand, Malcolm Nance, Jack Kingston | Real Time
okay so before we get to the questions would you and the governor like to answer what I was saying about it was quoting Norm Ornstein and Thomas Mann they're very very esteemed journalists they were bipartisan and they said it's the Republicans fault I think that when President Trump has a good proposal the country would be better off if Democrats got behind like which one case in point case in point how long do you want to stay in Afghanistan you're right that's the one I'm hoping for and and there and and I know one of the issues also that's there is the deficit and if you bring the troops back from these regime regime changed wars that you would save billions of dollars and lives yeah and I think that's something that should have the Republicans voted against him on that they finally found something to stand up to him about it was you are not for war enough but but bill there is an opportunity for a core of Democrats and a core of Republicans to say you know what the president's got a good point here let's get behind him well I'm for that I mean you're right the Liberals have been hypocritical about that they were for ending forever war and now therefore and and and when he talked about Family Medical Leave Chuck Schumer stood up I think he was only one of the Democrats side who did it but that you know there again reward good behavior the first step act to his credit cory booker brought somebody who had been released from jail...
who had been sentencing for a long period of
timeand that criminal justice reform in the first step back passed in december great partisanship and it should be done again attacking opioids again great national problem 60,000 people a year die from it Democrats and Republicans have a good opportunity to get behind something like that when and then when he talks about wiping out childhood leukemia why did why not erupt with claps and applause saying hell yeah let's do this because it's a horrible I don't think that the Democrats are for childhood leukemia okay all right all right you got your rebuttal in Governor
Christie do you think there are any Democrats that have your signature in-your-face approach to dealing with the opposition is there a Democrat
Christie I guess they're asking well god thank god no no I just said I think Bernie has a bit of that you know Bernie doesn't act out any and when Bernie's got a point of view he's gonna say it and he doesn't
really sugarcoat anything so I think Sandra's is one of those who do you think is the Democrats best choice to run in 2020 I think the one that the president would be most afraid of if he can stay in his Lane is Biden and the reason why is because Biden could go to Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Michigan and appeal to white working-class voters and if he does that he only has to peel off seven to ten thousand votes in each one of those states to be and he's gonna win...
two of them but there's many states and he's not going to hurt the base anyway see but well he's not going to excite the base and but you know what that base gets a little bit too excited it's gonna drive away the rest of the middle of the country because some of the stuff that the base is talking about is not gonna be you know it's not going to be appealing to the middle of the country and this is the same mistake I think Democrats have made in a number of different elections where they say this is great we love it but they don't care about what the middle of the country thinks they care about the two coasts I also put in Tulsi Gabbard and I put in John Delaney if they get traction John Delaney has an incredible business record in Tulsi Gabbard I think she has a refreshing voice when it comes to these wars that are endless and regime change she's pulling the Russians like but that that investor the Russians like her New York
Times looked at that story that NBC ran and discredited the guy who claims that this guy named Jonathan Morgan and a group called up okay
Idleas president of the footlights Club at Cambridge you were the first to allow women to join you personally which I did that yes you did what motivated your decision what year was that it was it was 1965 Wow and it was before the Cambridge colleges admitted women and it was just nuts you know what this funny women the hell we need them in the club you know sir and Germaine Greer was...
the first one to join who wrote the she wrote the Female Eunuch and and you had more balls than any man but the pythons mostly dressed as women well that was personal reasons is it possible someday we will look back on dressing as a woman and think that that is not appropriate I mean we're only at the beginning of
really having transgender awareness I wonder if some day we'll look back and go WOW tutsi not funny Tasha excluding Trump which family member is more likely to be in jeopardy with the special counsel Don junior or Jared I think that Don junior is probably in more immediate jeopardy just because of his
really congressional testimony yeah I mean he has been telling his friends and associates that he expects to be indicted and he's been saying that for the last couple months so yeah I think that his his accounts about you know the Trump Tower meeting in 2016 his accounts about Trump Tower Moscow and how involved he was and that could put him in some legal jeopardy there and as we know Muller has shown no shyness about going after people for lying to Congress so okay should any serious discussion of the national debt by the way in the in the State of the Union speech no mention of that usually presidents at least do lip service Trump is like it I'm just gonna write a check the whole
timeI'm here you know what doesn't matter printing money he said it I any serious discussion of the national debt include cuts to the military budget yes yes to...
really cut it you got to talk about everything and yes part of it you got to talk about entitlements though to which Democrats seems to be completely allergic to you know they don't want to talk about that well they don't want to talk about I agree the fact that Medicare and Medicaid I was a governor I asked to do managed care and Medicaid now this is not like splitting the atom there's managed care everywhere where I took the Obama administration two-and-a-half years to give me permission to spend the 50% that I spend on managed care like Democratic administrations have been allergic to ever saying to anybody no you can't do that in the entitlements so I agree with you I'll put military on this on the table you put entitlements on the table and we'll fix the brothers called a grand bargain right and Obama tried for a grand bargain with John Boehner and to the point of the editorial I just did the Republicans wouldn't let him there wasn't remember that grand bargain and a grand bargain is what we need but it has to be giving up on both sides Trump completely does not understand this his way of negotiating is I want my wall now how about you give me my wall I spent eight years with Democrats in the legislature New Jersey and what you learn is everybody has to win if I'm gonna negotiate everybody has to win something and and guys then awash you could have forgotten about that it's because they don't have to work with each other...
because they're in these gerrymandered districts where they never have to worry about a general election all they have to worry about is primaries in New Jersey I'm a Republican I had to worry about my back every day right so make deals and give them some of what they watch that you get some of what you want just remember he did in February 2018 Schumer shut down the government it was a three-day shutdown over though thank you making a deal and now all he's saying is why don't you vote the way you did in February and we we don't have any glitches in the government he's only talking about five point seven billion dollars and talking about the military we all know that's lunch money that's nothing five point seven billion dollars in a three point seven trillion we when you add about what I'm saying that same 5.7 billion in comparison yes there are the things we spray on it doesn't mean we should waste it on something stupid well yes Democrats 100 miles give the wall 100 miles come back in two years see which one's more effective and then build build more of that or less like a stealth wall because I think stealth airplanes are literally invisible thank you very much sleep tight you
