i think you. republicans believe this is a defining moment in american politics. it had cruised reading, today's diamonds are the party of big, . republicans are the party of the little guy, small business, blue-collar workers, cops, firefighters, waiters and waitresses. let's discuss the future of the g.o.p. and the increasingly tense relationship with corporate america. submitting to city commissioner and bill mcgurn, good to have you with us tonight >> thank you. >> shannon: taking up on the conversation, congressman jim banks who put out this memo couple weeks ago talking about what he sees as an opportunity for the g.o.p. president trump gave the republican party a political gift. we are now the party supported by most working-class folk to voters. the question is whether republicans reject that gift or unwrap it and permanently become
9:15 pm
the party of the working class. bernie, he talked about being very pro-worker in pro-business, but not necessarily pro-corporation, suggesting that republicans -- it may be their fight for them to take on. >> i agree come i personally agree. the reason being, the little guy, the worker, the cops, the fireman, the waitresses, the truck drivers, these are the people that make this country what it is. you know, you can support big business, but you can't give them every day under the sun. that seems to be what the democratic party is doing. i would like to see it the other way around. >> and it's interesting because president biden has very much -- we talked about his working-class background and that he is a regular guy, regular joe. he has wanted to talk about that quite a bit.
9:16 pm
if there's been this conversation about what democrats are cozying up to big corporations. it now, he sang he wants to entertain the idea of 28% tax rate on corporations. here's how he explained his justification for that today. >> president biden: i don't try to punish anybody, but maybe it's because of i come from a middle-class neighborhood, and sick and tired of people getting fleece. this we would both talking about they want to be the party of ordinary americans. >> let me just comment on the example you just offered. when we had at the corporate rate much higher than it is now, joe biden was among the many complaining about all of the corporations that were leaving the united states and setting up operations in countries like ireland. we put the rates back up there, we are going to encourage more of that. the reason we didn't have that so much in the trump years is
9:17 pm
not just because donald trump told them, don't move and so forth. it's because his policies on taxes and regulations actually made the united states a much more attractive place to invest. all americans were better off then. i'm not that fond of the class distinctions, of setting different classes against each other. i'm for having your principles and doing it right, and to than the benefits flow to everyone. it looked, when you have light taxes, low regulation, and it's open to business, people do well. during the trump years, there was what, $5,000 increase in the average earnings of an american family? that came from those kinds of policies. i think the republicans need to go back to their principles. i thought at the convention they did an excellent job of showing those principles and how they relate to ordinary people. i think that's what we need, i don't think we need to reinvent the wheel. >> shannon: have we have more
9:18 pm
and more corporations weighing in on the georgia voting law, the proposal what's going on, there's a conversation about whether or not there should be boycotts, whether they work for conservatives or liberals, whether they should be done. if you know who said this, feel free to put it out. i'll read you a quote. until they relent, we can play the game better than them. any idea who said it? >> not off the top of my head, no. >> shannon: that was president trump. if that's what he set on saturday. let me ask you both quickly before you weigh in. what do you think about this idea. he says, don't go back to them, don't give them your money or business. >> listen, in some way i agree. i would like to see all of these corporations get out of politics. you know, you're supposed to take care of the people you are out there for. i think it creates all kinds of
9:19 pm
more political problems that we have already, i would like to see them stay out of politics, take care of the people that borrow your products, and let the politicians deal with the stuff they have to deal with in the communities. >> shannon: quick, craig neal, bill? >> boycotts are hard, they don't usually work. if you read will for radicals, he talks about trying to narrow the focus to one topic because it's very hard to sustain. you know, if these companies pay a price for it, i'm not going to worry about it. i don't think that's the path to a better future. we've had boycotts on disney before, and so forth. what's really happening with the ceos is they are afraid. they are afraid for their work agenda that they targeted. just be when we got to leave it there. it bill and bernie, thank you both.

9:46 pm
about losing the cockpit. excellence is not in contention with the diversity, diversity of thought, diversity of experience -- i personally think the best way to screen candidates or pilots for the diversity of their thoughts is to screen them for the diversity of their thoughts. screen the candidates of diversity of experiences. i don't think using skin color or gender as proxies are heuristics for true diversity as the right way to go. excellence, opportunity, and stability atomic civility. >> shannon: i don't know why some of those words have become offensive to some people, the fact that you would work on a meritocracy or is he said, pursuing excellence, we can all do that, we all want to do that and whatever our chosen field is. thank goodness we live in a country where you pretty much have the opportunity to do that. joel berry says is, he says he went to college to be a pilot. this is his reaction to this. he says, how many bad pilots will be crammed through the

flight program to meet diversity requirements question mike how many good pilots world lose their dreams for not having the right skin color? how long until this causes an accident? how many women and people of color would die in that accident? that's a worst-case scenario, but there has to be excellent pilots, iphone with pilots that are women, men, who are different race and ethnic backgrounds. i'm assuming they are good to go. >> i agree with you. i think there's something valuable in that tweet. it's a disservice to every female pilot and every pilot of color as expression goes, because they are looked at differently when you know they were put in a cockpit in part as a part of a function of affirmative action program that united put in place. if anything, if united wanted to increase diversity in its ranks, they could've done it without announcing it. instead, they are playing this game but they want to get the corporate credit. the people they throw on the bus are the people who may be there because of merit, who may be
9:48 pm
there because they are excellent, but their peers may no longer see them that way because of a product of the just dominic affirmative action program. america is really divided into tribes, their workers are divided into tribes to suffer. just be when there's a conversation about how woke corporation should be and how they should get involved in politics, whether they should or shouldn't, there's a lot of free speech here. people are free to vote with their dollars as well if they don't want to support an issue or a stance a corporation has taken. it jamie dimon of jpmorgan, the ceo, says this. companies like ours have an extraordinary capability to help, not just with funding, but with developing strong public policy, which can have a greater impact on society. he said he thinks company should be getting into the political arena. what do you think? >> i couldn't disagree more strongly. milton friedman might've said 50 years ago he was worried about democracy influencing companies and making them less efficient,
9:49 pm
i agree to some extent. the bigger concern is the reverse, the way in which companies are going to pollute our democracy. at this used to be the concern of liberals, it was a card-carrying progressive future to hate you and i did progressives ought to be every bit of concerned as conservatives. imagine if the tables were turned and every major corporation in america were demanding in favor of the georgia florida law, every progressive would see the procedural progress stomach problem as he conservatives do today. i think this is an integrity of democracy issue. for jamie dimon to have greater influence, that's good for a ceo. it's ultimately not good for america. i'll tell you one more thing, and the reverse direction, one of the things that brings us together is the preservation of these apolitical spaces, including companies, including sports, where people can come together in respect of their politics and color their skin and pursue common projects together. if that's part the fabric that
9:50 pm
