tv   Victor Davis Hanson The Dying Citizen  CSPAN  November 26, 2021 8:01pm-8:56pm EST

8:01 pm
>> good evening. i'm the editor and publisher of the new criterion and i think i know most people in the audience so i'm going to take a page from the wh who instructed him to came for a confection, be blunt and be gone. [laughter] three things.
8:02 pm
welcome to our friends of the new criterion, we wouldn't have a sense like this if it were not for your support so thank you for coming and welcome. the reason for this event beside the new criterion's 48th anniversary, feel free to take a magazine, the launch of victor davis important new book, his publisher which is not encounter books but another letter publisher, they like that with this one, it might be victor's most important book and you know he's written a strength of important books, everyone thinks the citizen as being something that's been around forever. true. victor has written what i think will be one of the books of the
8:03 pm
year, if not of this new decade feel free to take a copy, remember the publisher so you can stock up for real for your holiday shopping purchases. i also want to do some thank youse, several people in this room who support the new criterion would not exist, i won't embarrass you by naming you but i want to single out the hoover institution and robert family foundation who made the evening possible. we're going to been joined any moment by making kelly who will do the interview.te she will introduce an element of candor and glamour that's generally foreign to any
8:04 pm
institution whose activities take place under the name of harvard we are delighted we could do this. two logistical things, i mentioned the book so feel free to grab aut copy of the book. if you happen to get a copy not signed, you can fun hold victor and he will sign it. the second thing i expect this interview to be entirely eliminated but it is conceivable it will be so illuminating there will be one or two questions that form inio the mind as you e listening to things but don't jump up and asked the question but i want you to snag my colleague who is here someplace, megan kelly's assistant, abby who is also here someplace and they will make themselves known. there is isaac. they will greet you with a card
8:05 pm
and a pen you can inscribe your question and megan will scrutinize them. [laughter] and do the appropriate triage. where's megan? i feel like the chaplain -- she is here someplace that mark. >> thank you very much. good to see her. for i've condensed it into this new form. how are you? how are you guys? good, this is as close as i'm ever going to get to harvard. [laughter] i'm sorry. we had good times there. i read the whole book and i adore victor as i'm sure all of you do and the sad thing i
8:06 pm
realized about the dying citizen victor is it leads to the dying country and one reason you are sounding the alarm, i think. let's start with the title and why you call it what you did. >> my friend roger asked that question and i said it's not dead, it's still dying, it's respirator. >> you are saying there's a chance. >> yes. if we have this conversation two years ago whatever your political persuasion would be, i think we wouldld.on say the bors improving, secure. he would say the middle east is much better than it is now and there was a new policy toward china and maybe you could argue the economy while we were spending too much money, who were not grappling stagflation futurists on the middle class, first increases in real wages in 12 years. critical race theory was not so emboldened as it was in 2020 or whatever wet called it, identity
8:07 pm
politics so whatever was going on, it wasn't as bad as it is now so that means it can be reversed. the other thing is the republican party was so susceptible to the character of the left, i think he was a decent man but he is a character of the golf course grandy but how ironic in history a guy who was a billionaire saw worker populist party could emphasize class rather than race and we would end up with mexican-american communities on the border electingmu republica, community and local leaders in fear of open borders, it's happened in my own town as well so i think there's a real chance there's going to be a new recalibration for the democratic left will be the party of the silicon valley elite, the wealthy and subsidize poor and
8:08 pm
things will have the upper middle and middle middle and lower middle class and that was inconceivable in 20 years and i think it will be the majority of the country so i am cautiously optimistic. >> that's good, i am feeling better already. [laughter] you talk about in the book rural residents are a labor of inferior rank but then we got the middle class and millions of americans are becoming a new version with debt and declining wages, a new version of peasantry. >> it's a funny work, it's latin for rustic which doesn't exist in classical latin vocabulary and the same thing in greek, there is no work for president.
8:09 pm
i don't think there's a word for parentri peasant we don't call people presence unless it's a cultural term, aquarians and small small farmers, it's a foreign experience because we have a viable middle-class show is to protect the property of the middle class. this idea comes near going to plan and pass it on to our children, it takes a long time to grow an investment we want that property and out of outcomes of mozilla rewrites and this is what jefferson said same thing, maybe we didn't really earn it but we had this land in homestead and the idea people could come and be autonomous,
8:10 pm
independent on ten or 20 or 40 acres from a very classical and the idea that they werepe goingo lack envy of the rich or the poor and maybe dependency of the court and they were going to be a work of the urban rich to leverage or find influence in government so i'm almost quoting directly aristotle why he says you need a middle-class, essential to citizenship and ono other thing in history, unfortunately when you have a radical democracy of landless people and they feel they are equals politically and they want to be equal in every other aspect of their life regardless of luck or talent or misfortune or good fortune, independent, they don't need to because they have a world under their own and we have been successful in this country having the va bill of
8:11 pm
rights, the veteran still in homeowner fha homes on the independent trucker small business, that is the logical urban suburban evolution of a small farming society. 95% were aquarians we had the constitution. one of the half% now farm we still have a middle-class because it evolved into small entrepreneurial people and they are very essential so when you start to lose them, i talk about the way we are losing them in a final thought, you can see when you lose that viability and people don't have confidence to get married, they don't have confidence have children or buy a home, he look at the statistics and when people getk married 50 years ago, 23 on average.
8:12 pm
twenty-six now about 29. when did theyir have their first child? about 33 and when do they buy a home? late 30s. we were up to 62% were homeowners and now it's down to about 59 against and those are the things that make people conservative, reinforced conservatism when you have to be married and worry about children in the home and things. >> when i read the book, i was struck by the numbers included. when you mentioned fewer and fewer people are owning homes, half of our renters have a net worth under thousand dollars. just over half of all ranking seniors have net worth of less than 7000. nearly half of all females headed right families have less than $2000 in net worth to people are struggling. they don't have the property or land nevermind a home.
8:13 pm
>> work on the stanford schizophrenic relationship, i live in this ground zero we have a hispanic middle-class but what a strange news or hear people say it's good we have gas going up to $5 because of carbon emissions. but my wife and daughter called the gas station and arena because when it's undercut 10 cents or 20 cents, there are a line of 50 cars of mexican people or up to 105, almost every day, droves of people go to walmart not to buy things, take toys for the kids and destroy the store maybe but they want the free air conditioning and get people on the coast will
8:14 pm
say why we want this air-conditioned economy? well, it's 75 degrees but i don't think how thin the margin is in the middle class, they fall out quickly, they can't afford food, fuel and air conditioning and yet this is the wealthiest country in the world so we have to have a middle-class and that was why i don't think any of us want a society of an asymmetric california. california -- >> california takes a beating. >> i know. >> unlike the great state of new york.he [laughter] is a chapter in their i know must be near and dear to your heart because we talked about it many times. versus citizens, he right how congress envisions unity and
8:15 pm
homogeneity it used to be in the country people would emigrate to the country and within a couple of generations their native customs were all but forgotten, we had been a melting pot and didn't feel threatened by immigration, the patriotism we felt, it was all built and and you capture how it started to change and why we call it woke is him ripping that apart. >> i think what happened is two things. the parties each for different reasons, whatever two parties agree on, watch out they agreed on open borders. the right wanted cheap labor, originally agriculture but only 20% of illegal aliens affecting their use that term, work in
8:16 pm
agriculture now. >> in new york city because in ordinate saying is unlawful to use the term illegal immigrant. it's done with malice you can check me on that but i'm pretty sure. >> i had a 20 year war with myec syndicator because i used illegal alien said it had to be illegal immigrants and then it had to be undocumented immigrant and then it had to be immigrant and now it's derogatory so it had to be migrant because they didn't want prejudice on which way a person was going when they migrated so but the right wanted cheap labor, the mexican government wanted the 30 billion and how ironic was it that people would come and depend on the united states to free up two or $300 to some back to mexico because the mexican government didn't care about people. now it's 60 billion with america included and you could argue it ywas reversed rhetoric jackson turner safety software people
8:17 pm
said should we merge on mexico city? no, let's margin the united states. they liked it and the left of course, the la raza was a funny word, there was no la raza in the movement at all until about 50 years ago and people dug up the novel and the italian plaza and they found out this emulation of hitler that said you couldn't be my italian unless you look a certain way and you couldn't be banished even if you were spaniard and even if you were living in the peninsula, so they cooked up these racist terms and hispanic militants took that term and reinvented it. i've been attacking it so much
8:18 pm
and finally they changed it and said i think it is -- now. they wanted to change the mammography. look at california, they said we are never going to have a party of governor of reagan, pete wilson or even arnold schwarzenegger again and now we have a super majority in both legislationsla held by republicn and the ninth circuit is liberal despite trump's appointees and farming i think they felt it flipped the electoral college. colorado is split, i don't think they're going to flip texas but they believe they can so there are all these people who wanted open borders and the only ones who didn't really middle-class who said they are lowering wages
8:19 pm
and flooding they, i'm not supposed to use the word they either i am told, they are flooding the emergency rooms and i spoke with a fellow i know very well that he said why do we want people to crowd in so my mother can't get dialysis? at the dialysis clinic or why would we want to go back to bilingual education we have all of these people coming in who we don't know? the fact that they are not vaccinated and yet doctor fauci has never mentioned that not once, people get an eloquent part about some poor person in west doesn't get vaccinated, we are bringing in anticipated to millions that will come across the border without vaccination. thomas as if a citizen is punished in a non- citizen is rewarded and it transcends to travel so one of the weirdest experiences when you come into
8:20 pm
lax, you see somebody without a passport and they take them into that booth and dress them down and they have to call but they try to make it don't do that and get one people just come across with no identification at all -- >> is asked on cnn what about illegal immigrants coming across the border who aren't tested or think of the vaccine and the into the country on the honor system to come back? his response was essentially the illegal immigrant are not the cause of the pandemic, a complete dodge. my 8-year-old is not the cause of the pandemic either but he has to have a a mask on his face all day and all three of my kids will soon have to get the vaccine whether i want them to have it or not. >> when you confuse a citizen that has responsibility they take on in accordance to the right versus the resident that
8:21 pm
you are back to forced entry you have migratory groups from the west part of the roman empire in the north and i'm trying to think of all of the things we used to say as citizens that was unique to the citizen, the citizen alone go in-and-out of the country at will, i think that is gone now. if you're not as busy, you can go back to mexico or back and forth across the border without a passport. a citizen was eligible for entitlement and thrown out by the court. citizens alone put boat, school board elections i think in massachusetts i don't california illegal are voting. the only thing i can think of a citizen has a right over residents legal or illegal is holding office, i think that is under question now, to so if you have a group of people who are residents and we don't know much about them and we don't know
8:22 pm
what their customs or traditions are and we are not able to assimilate or integrate or intermarry because they are so large a number, 2 million of them from we've done this work year sternrn europeans will relieve a host and never came give up onga the melting pot. your own particular culture no longer necessary incidental to who you are, it will be essential so raises the question, why are they doing this?, maybe a liberal but i don't want my kids to go to school with their kids? i don't know what is. it's almost medieval or
8:23 pm
something. >> but currently threatens to change the historic pattern? it's not sudden white racism, is a huge number of empowered first aliens recently are crossing the border and upon arrival are encouraged to emphasize their otherness by a mostly white progressive elite. there is no more pressure to assimilate at all. tribalism is encouraged and one of the main things dividing the country. >> i went to school, i think there were nine of us not mexican-american and the way they taught us, missus evans was beach therapist, she would be put in jail now. she would say we are all going to be successful and to be successful, you must not be english-language. i don't mean know it but i mean master it. repeat after me, i have a stick shift chevy.
8:24 pm
you have a stick shift chevy. if i would repeat that, i think i did once or twice, should be appalled but the group who came out about experience a very successful now. the police, principal so there was this idea and i thought 21 years mostly mexican-american and southeast asian kids and children of the diaspora, the ideas to teach latin and they have the aptitude. would say you're going to go to graduate school and learn italian, french and german. we sent 55 to the iv league in 21 years. classics and history andnd language but the biggest problem was either white liberals on campus and they said you are appropriating their culture doing this, doing this, meanwhile their kids were in that school.
8:25 pm
i think the conservative movement and really show that, everybody said what can we do? you can tell the left they are hypocritical and elitist and i think a lot of it, they are not comfortable with people who don't look like them so they built up this huge façade of caring and abstract, that's more prone in academia than the real world business. >> you right about how beyond tribalism and destruction of patriotism go hand-in-hand and they are equally dangerous. you talk about the deep state and a administratively the left more and more is seizing control of regulations nevermind loss, they have far more regulations than moss and ten to one or ridiculous ratio so that has a way of changing the way we live
8:26 pm
and our kids live and what our thinking about while reading the book is college campuses and the front letter where we got rid of due process for youngur men accused on college campus which is being brought back, the illumination of due process brought back but administrative rules can change our lives and it's one of the many areas in which the left seized control and seeks to avoid in some instances, the constitution laws in the bookut. >> i write in the first book peasants, residents and tribes are pre-civilizational forces in the citizenships but more deliberate top down, not bottom up. i had the chapter chapter on the one you are talking about in that section, an administrative state. i was thinking the other day
8:27 pm
think of people who have been in the news lately, anthonyny fauc, okay, i have no problems in the federal employees but the institute of allergy and infectious diseases expanded their control to adjudicate whether you can collect rent or not. rent agreement contract legal agreements are predicated on whether this national health disaster or not. that is incredible. then we look towh these grandes and we are worried about what the nature of the virus will be, we found out belatedly that it was the wuhan mob and researchers with the military component involved in that research and it appears likely they've never found in animal infected with covid. >> and they said 80000.
8:28 pm
>> so it looks like it's a gain of function and we hear anthony fauci who's been adamant that this was not gain of function have been channeling 600,000 to echo house which echo health was part of the adjudicators of whether it was true or not so the person judged during executioners of this problem and you say maybe his next option. i was looking at general milley, i have utmost regard for military but we have t a person the chairman of the joint chief, until 1947, 53 and 2006 statute said it's an advisory role not in the chain of command and get he openlyy breaks he interrupted the chain of command alters the chain of command that applies nuclear pose and said he has to go through me and suddenly his not advisor. opposition leader in the house nancy pelosi told him or said to him he's crazy but then said i
8:29 pm
don't believe he's crazy. then calls up his counterpart in the people's liberation army to warn him there might be a preemptive attack. it's as if august of 1940 the chief of naval operations fdr is not in there hiding his health which they work and we have been preemptive with this and i think this government might want to be preemptive.nt i can assure you i will warn you they will attack you. it would be absurd and then violating, this is something i don't understand, we as citizens make these laws to control people were not elected so we have a uniform code of military justice in world war ii so each servicebe are on the same. he says the commander of one and
8:30 pm
two and three and four shall not disparage commander-in-chief and what have we heard? the commander-in-chief was hitler, he should be gone sooner or later and general milley called up a journalist and told him he believes commander-in-chief is a hitler figure, it's a violation and yet there's no consequences so he's almost aneq emblem of all these people when you combine the judicial executive and legislative branches and onendla bureaucratic, the citizen that's lost control, we saw it with absolute i don't know the word, it was chilling for me and when james said under oath we don't spy an essay on anybody and then he was caught and he said i gave
8:31 pm
the least untruthful answer, none of us could do that with the irs. he said i had a call from the irs indigent reporter and i did, but, i gave you the least untruthful answer. there were no consequences when john brennan said we never spied on the staffer's computer. live. he admitted it was a lie. he would never have collateral damage that operations. he admitted it was a lie. james comey, 245 times, i can't remember. for the two simple i don't know, the foundation of the whole western collusion hopes, steel dossier and gps. robert mueller was asked under oath what is your opinion? i don't even know what they were. i thought if you don't know, why did you spend $40 million and 22 months? it's almost an insult they are saying to the citizen we say how
8:32 pm
do we address that? who gave them such power? where did these bureaucrats -- we are just talking about people from the conservative support, the natural base of support of the military, fbi and cia, it's not the hhs which we could go on and on. i'm kind of getting animated because 1983 the price of raisins collapse, i mentioned in the book and i didn't know the raising administrative committee owns your raisins whether you grew them are not so raisins were below the cost of production so about ten of us were broken said we are not going to send our raisins to be cleaned and stamped and sold and we get a letter that says you don't own your raisins from the administrative committee has owned since 1937. i called the guy up and said are you serious?
8:33 pm
guess. if you pulled them back, who will compensate 84% of them as the reserve. so we keep the domestic price and export them overseas in the program so you didn't even own the impact law is still in existence that i could go in with oranges but we created people, there is no citizen redirect and they get bigger and bigger. the irony one thing about trump, he seemed to hate high interest and hated regulators so he passed more regulations than almost anybody in it was a tense, at least itf was in the right direction. >> if you read the book, one thing i o learned is we know the
8:34 pm
left captured major cultural institutions, that's not news. media obviously, entertainment and we could go on but the book meat on the bones of but why do you feel this with water rising around us right now? you can turn off the tv and choose not to watch the oscars are enemies, you can choose which news to taken the feeling of the water rising is everywhere for some of the reasons you're talking about, losing control of the fenestrated, is not a deep state conspiracy like the dark arts control. it's what you're talking about. there's a great chapter on globalism and affecting the average american, decreased wages and moms having little money in the bank and worked their whole lives for. they are depending on the government even if you've tried hard your whole life. you could goes to college and has no rights and is accused by somebody -- all of this is
8:35 pm
captured in a way where you feel powerless so it's not just about fighting woke, it is more widespread than that. >> it is seductive it if you took the life of julia -- >> thank you. >> do you like the life of julia commercial ran where julia was a mythical american cradle-to-grave we went through her lifecycle? she was given prenatal as a young toddler and she got into nutrition programs and preschool and all the way, she's a single mom and the commercial is basically saying you know how to be independent, the state will take care of it and another counterpart promote the guy with he said drink hot chocolate, it's almost eerie because there's a passage in f democracy
8:36 pm
in america where he talks about the tendencies of democracies to create a prolonged adolescent and said you better be careful because the state will step in and offer services to you and the price will be loss of your own freedom and latitude like the classical siren to are you under the rocks so it's not something we fight all the time, it's more like they whisper in your ear and you don't need to go to work right now. it's been bad, we will pay you $600 a week, stay home, don't go out there to l.a. and lift containers on the port, they will be fine out there. we are worried about you and that's how we get where we are. >> victor was on my show the other day and i asked about trump and he's had the greatest thing about time, he said trump was like chemotherapy.
8:37 pm
if you've got cancer, you need chemo it may come and there may be an element of toxicity to it but that is what you need to fight the cancer and you don't turn it down. there's a much bigger problem at hand that needs potentially toxic medicine. that leads me to my first audience? >> round of applause. [applause] >> these people did not put their names on it. should trump be active in the midterms around for president? >> wow, a lose lose question. [laughter] i don't know how many people have asked me in all of you this question. his agenda was very good and we can see it by negative examples but could maybe we have the agenda but avoid the tweeting
8:38 pm
and saying nancy poses like a girl and all that stuff in the next think they also defense because he's the ideal candidate and it's an alluring candidate. my answer is i don't know because i felt that about scott walker being ideal, he was a wonderful politician but when he got on thego stage he didn't do too well and there are so many unknowns and unknowns, has donald trump learned from his experience? with he hit the ground running with the whole team in which he was able to do that and nobody could blame him. how much will the margins accompanying him? so i don't know the answer but i don't think there's anybody on the republican side that can go into michigan or wisconsin and get 40000 people out and appeal
8:39 pm
to that constituency and i think they will have to do that if they g win so i am neutral on that. if i were to criticize quickly, we admitted there h were two candidates in georgia and to charismatic socialists and everybody knew charismatic socialists might win in georgia and either trump didn't believe it or the party didn't believe it but had he gone down there and not talked about prior elections from his election, whatever happened to me, forgetd about it, go out to vote, trust in the election, boat, boat, boat. we wouldn't be in this situation were kamala harris decides whether we have electoral college. o had he said i'm going to campaign like i never have in the 2022 midterm, i think i'm
8:40 pm
over use that term but he would haveve said i might not be the purpose and to perpetuate the ideas i created that helped everybody but i can do more for everybody and i think i have used this, i can be the high noon cooper or the professionals or magnificent, i can do a great service but i'm not sure i am going to run it would benefit him enormously or give him more choices as well. >> the charter situation, the book does a nice job talking about the end after trump lost and everything that happened from there on important the left, for january 6 thing and what happened in georgia made it important the left and reminded me of trump and famous or
8:41 pm
infamous depending on your view and we had our sparring but trump was on the president to pass the anti- trafficking law. he's the guy who signed it and i've had more than one secretary asking to come toct me and saide saved my life and change my life if you look at trumpets a the package that it came in from of the package that came in and you look at the charter situation for it's like what i is he doin? same package. that's just who he is. i don't know if he is controllable. >> a collective amnesia. if we were to say fdr i didn't agree, my parents and grandparents, i don't think the new deal was the solution but if we were to say i would fdr have an affair with lucy mercer with
8:42 pm
his daughter being the go-between? donald trump never did that his daughter. could you imagine if obamama wa? the special treatment trump card was we have interconnected technology and empowered left and a different attitude about the media that i can say about gross things about the present whether jfk betting a staffer or lbj exposing himself. >> bill clinton. >> i didn't quite get the idea we focused on these negative attributes of him and we have his agenda to help trafficking or the middle class but he gets back to this fundamental never trump, their argument was he was so toxic, we've never seen anybody like him so therefore we can nullify this effective
8:43 pm
conservative and i don't think that was the persuasion. >> it was reminding me of a line that says trump's problem is not that he lied, it's that he tells the truth. [laughter] another question. i didn't care you use the word tevil referring to the deep state. are there not instances of evil in their activities? this week's directed by attorney general to call and fbi to investigate parents who criticized critical race theory. >> i think that is at the heart of what it is, a feeling that they have exalted in any means necessary can be justified to achieve them. i was a student, i was got so sick and i heard any means necessary and one day they would say that's what they said it
8:44 pm
would mean they would come in distinguished art historian because they were trying to show you his art was sexist or racist. it's deeply embedded with the left-wing mindset so they don't feel they have to be symmetrical so when merrick garland can't tell us he's got evidence of a conspiracy or racketeering or a plot to commit violence against school board members rather than making them feel uncomfortable, you still use the fbi because equity or antiracism, especially mobile goal what he will not do is be empirical on the he will not say it's a federal offense to harass and intimidate u.s. senatorr, it's a state colony in arizona to take a picture of
8:45 pm
somebody going into a stall and put it into the internet. or it's a violation of federal aviation code to get on an airline and creates confrontation. those are federal crimes just like you want say rand paul should not be surrounded or bullied after the state of the union address, he wants a jeff white can't be in an elevator swarmed during the covid hkavanaugh hearing or just as e might say i am marilyn garland and senator schumer you have a monocyclic supreme court you set kavanaugh in carthage, you're going to pay for this and that was intimidation of the supreme court so don't believe they have to be symmetrical because they feel they are more than we are. revealing merrick garland who pass himself off as a long-suffering traffic classical
8:46 pm
liberal was all along what he is now. >> are these moments you want to stand up and cheer? he can string it together like nobody can string it together. really impressive. [laughter] do we have time for one more? okay. we will leave on an up note. what gives you the most hope for the future? >> well -- you give me a lot of hope that i am prejudiced. the old saying what can't go on won't go on. when you look at the situation we are having right now, you cannot have a nation without -- with open borders. when barack obama said this is not sustainable, that is pretty indicative and feels sometimes they are going to get martha's
8:47 pm
vineyardar. [laughter] when you look at the home a situation, my daughter who is not a trump supporter calls me and says dad, i can't take my children to this park or that park or when i go to they said sir, did you look at the bottom of your feet? are getting to where you look at the port of los angeles and you see the tankers, it is scary containers are not moving and people are home not working so that is not sustainable. something is going to's happen d we do have a constitutional system pretty durable and i feel in this midterm, the republican party -- let me stopped.
8:48 pm
if the republican party can be somewhat sensible, they can have a 1938 or 1994, 2010 correction and stop it very quickly and what makes me excited that i mentioned before, for the first time in my life, i am excited about the republican party, i've never been a part of the republican party. i look at and think why is my friend who's a mexican-american highway patrolman so eager to be a republican? why these communities along the southern border so eager to be republicans and voting in republicans? why are people of different races and ethnic background saying they are republican? i think they see themselves as an aggrieved middle-class and theys feel they have more in common, a mexican-american person they share of has more in common with a white child of the
8:49 pm
oklahoma in bakersfield than they do with their elite representative professors so i think what we are doing is building very slowly a new middle part of the national class that has a lot in common and doesn't trust open borders mentality or identity politics, it wants things for the middle class, it doesn't trust bureaucrats we talk about. academic revolutionaries to change the filibuster and they are not globalists. i am very happy talking to somebody people i grew up with and they say things like has anybody been to prison where you work? i say no and they say do they know about this? and i say they don't know
8:50 pm
anything about it. they can tell you every restaurant in london or paris but they've never been to bakersfield and they never will and they don't want to but these new middle class people wanteo o go and see that. they are much more open-minded so i am optimistic about that in creating, how ironic that history is, it is tragic, but you've got this orange billionaire is the most selfish person ntc 16 other brilliant candidates you could remake the republican party and address the concerns of people from the middle east, i don't know if he did that deliberately but that's the way it works sometimes. that's a long and when the answer to say we have a lot to be helpful for. >> amen. we'll leave it at that. ♪♪ [applause] [applause] >> help yourself to another
