11:00 pm
and accomplish big things. if you want to know what the future looks like folks, come to new jersey. [applause] >> phil murphy tonight, the murphy winds follows a big loss in virginia. a state biden won by ten points. the republican then youngkin defeated the former democratic governor terry mcauliffe. some big reasons, big turnout unforced errors by the mcauliffe are well one campaign by youngkin and the fact that democrats have nothing to show where the voters are concerned for having control of the white house senate in house. >> there are now fears of a bloodbath in 2022. today the president was asked whether the delay in passing his economic agenda led to the democrats defeat in virginia. >> people want us to get things done. it should've passed before election day. but i'm not sure that i would be able to have changed the number of very conservative
11:01 pm
folks who turned out and the red districts that were trump voters. but maybe, maybe. >> some democrats in the senate where much less cautious about their assessment of yesterday's vote. >> what's congressional damage if we had been able to deliver infrastructure and reconciliation in october. he could've sold universal pre-k, affordable childcare. infrastructure creating jobs we blew it on the timing. >> congress has to deliver. we need to get it done. and as one who will be running for reelection in 2022 i need results that i can show the american people. >> we spent enough time talking. enough time thinking. and enough time suggesting to america the good things that are coming. now we have to prove it. >> house democrats who have been negotiating some would call it fighting for weeks to
11:02 pm
bring the spending on infrastructure bills to a vote, rejected their senate colleagues views. >> we did it help to not pass the bill and to have stories about the function, no it did not? does it hurt, yes it did. we was that the really determining element that put this election one way or the other, no. voters don't think that way. >> it happens to fall in this time where we did have elections and of course we have the national backlash of the cycle, so i would just say to everybody, focus on the fact that we are going to pass two transformational bills. >> today republicans in congress made a very clear that they see last night's election results as the voters rejection of biden and his policies and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell offered up his own stage advice for democrats. >> getting a result on this massive tax spending bill is not going to improve their
11:03 pm
position with the american people i think the best advice i could give them politically, after yesterday, they ought to drop the whole thing, not the after action report from house republicans echoed simmer lure themes attacking on this warning on what is to come. >> if they continue to push these policies, it could be one of the biggest election losses for democrats. if you are a democrat with the president biden won your seat by 16 points, you are in a competitive race next year. you are no longer safe. with this lets nights election in mind house democrats are pushing ahead with those bills. >> stop us if you've heard this before. they say that they are aiming for votes before the end of the week. today, speaker pelosi said paid leave had been added back into the spending bill that expands the social safety net as they called it, and more déjà vu here, west virginia senator joe manchin tonight made it clear that he is still not convinced
11:04 pm
it should be included. >> to keep the paid leave in, it's not being paid forward. i am all for paying, and i think that people should have. it but you think it should be done separately? >> done completely separately. >> this is also the day mentioned republican colleagues voted again the block -- after the late congressman john lewis. alaska republican lisa murkowski was the only republican senator to cross over votes with the democrats to bring the measure to the floor for debate. but nine more republicans would've been needed. vice president harris spoke after this afternoon's vote. >> this is about our democracy, and one of the most important pillars of our democracy. which is whether or not we are going to make it more difficult as it's happening in many states, or pretend to make it easier for people to vote. that is what is at stake right now. and it is a shame that nearly every republican, in the united states senate, refuses to even
11:05 pm
allow a debate on this issue. >> majority leader schumer later hinted that the democrats would find an alternative path to passing voting rights legislation, even if they have to do it without any republican support. well, with that, let's bring in our starting line on this wednesday night. susan page. veteran journalist and author longtime chief for usa today. jacqui, political report for the washington post author of the newsletter. the early tool to, and eugene robinson, columnist for the washington post. good evening, welcome to. all i have some idea how tired some of you are our. [laughs] susan it was obviously a tough night for democrats. what is worse for the losses that they suffered last night and the near misses, or failing to learn lessons from last night? >> we will find. all i mean the good thing for democrats is that they got this
11:06 pm
thing now, not six months from now. or not a year from now in the midterm elections. but this is a very disappearing evening, not just in virginia, when we've come to realize that the governor's race was going to be close to up and on the ballots, they almost lost new jersey. new jersey is about as true blue estate these days as you can find. so democrats do have some lessons to learn. and democrats today were drawing different lessons from that with night about what it is voters are saying they should do, brian. >> eugene, is there a singular lesson that emerge from last night? i don't think we know yet brian. i think that the political power can be fleeting, i think that is a lesson that should've been learned and that democrats have the power. now and if they are going to use it, they better get on with
11:07 pm
it. because that would partly help them politically, i think. and also, they might not have forever. but there are direct concrete consequences of this election for real people in virginia, you know, the incoming governor, the medical doctor, during the covid pandemic, he followed the science on mask, on vaccines. it's unclear to me whether youngkin is going to feel as if he has to compete with the likes of desantis and greg habit on the sort of anti-science on reckoning with racial justice in a quarter of bringing down the monument including the -- >> after all the critical race theory will with the youngkin will work with that at all. so we can forget that these little things will mean something to people.
11:08 pm
>> and jacqui, we heard from the president today, sounding very much like him, and trying to set a tone, but according to your reporting in that of your colleagues, what are the people in his circle saying? >> yes, i think what they are saying is reflected over a bit more subtly in the remarks which was sort of issuing some of the lanes for the election losses. calling on congress to the jobs that they were elected to. do and i think the response is that we saw today from democratic lawmakers are reflected in a way that -- president biden's economic agenda and really overall agenda done in any sort of way. you had people like joe manchin in virginia who were affirmative in all for the
11:09 pm
democrats for their role and be wary about inflation and the living cost. and then you have progressives. people like senator raul who said that he views this as indicative of the fact that progressives were not delivering all the -- to their base. either way, biden highlighted that the fact of democrats are yet to deliver and it's a major party from both infrastructure bills to win not much have gotten done since they passed the american rescue plan we. i think either way whatever direction that they want to go over this, they have limited time to make it happen. >> susan, coming off our less exchange i have this from political and i'd like to read it democrats house majority and their path to the white house in 2020 was filled in large part on suburban college education voters whose.
11:10 pm
president -- proves that democrats support in those suburbs is soft. the question, susan, did democrats misread the situation and foolishly put all their chips on being the anti trump party and just forget that sometimes issues like education are the ones that will resonate? >> you know, perhaps the most terrifying news for democrats last time was that trump is not that -- to swing voters when he is not on the ballot. that is something turn mcauliffe discovered. the other thing is that the glenn youngkin demonstrated inability to walk that tightrope to get endorsed by trump, but not be seen by him, because voters will seem really toxic, and republicans benefit
11:11 pm
from them next year. trump voters got out in those red counties and he flipped some of those suburban counties cutting into the vote that joe biden got among those swing voters, right, suburban voters many of those women came back to the republican party in a big way and, if democrats are gonna do all right in the congressional midterm, they need to get them back. >> eugene, that brings us to you and this question should democrats change their message and forgive me for implying, they have one other than, we're not trump. >> well, they need more of an affirmative message. they need a message other than we are not trump. we should all remember that swing voters are call swing voters for a region. because they swing back and forth, and independents and a large chunk of voters describe
11:12 pm
themselves as independent really don't go along to either party. they have to be. one so, yes. democrats have to have an affirmative message and it has to speak to the democratic base, it has to speak to those suburban white wing voters. it has to speak to rural voters. it is not viable, i think, the democratic party to write off rural america and i know that jaime harrison and the deviancy pull me no or not doing that in fact democrats are not as competitive in america as the majority that worthless. they've got some work to do >> and jack indeed, he wrote a piece for political and in their he argued that if
11:13 pm
democrats believed that build back better by the 2020 midterms and presenting that to the voters as deliverables is going to be enough to beat back a culture war, presumably on items like trent bathroom and critical race theory, they are deluding themselves. is the problem cultural? that they are not fighting the same fight as the other party, that they are certainly not playing by the same set of rules? >> i think there are two things here, brian, a bit of truth to that. i think when democrats -- they can probably run two pretty a mediately the messaging when it's the messaging issues when it comes to the build back better plan. at the end of the day, there is 1.75 billion dollars worth of new policies in deliverable to the american people, but because of all of the interim
11:14 pm
party fighting, it has been hard for members to communicate in a coherent way that resonates. but, on the flip side of it, that lease will be seen in virginia, is that candidates really do my daughter, and candidates messaging really matters, we've heard several democrats criticize terry mcauliffe or the way that he handles the issues of ruling with virginia, which was really heavily congested what you saw from glenn youngkin who really channeled the parental and grievance that was heavily coated with rachel language and dog whistles quite frankly. but, i think that there was a frustration from democrats with some of mcauliffe's responses that parents would home school their kids throughout the pandemic, should not have a say in their kids education. i think that there is a
11:15 pm
realization here, that they need to come up with some better answers to these cultural issues rather than sort of defaulting to the attack trump mode. >> and susan, last word, coming right off with jacqui just. said some democrats today were polite, some were more direct. and they said pretty directly that terry mcauliffe did not run a great campaign there was a sense of entitlement to it at least early on, and a number of unforced errors including the one jackie just outlined. >> they did not run a good campaign, as it turned out they looked backwards, not forward, they relied too much on tying glenn youngkin to trump. he named that -- when he said that he didn't want parents telling teachers want to teach. on the other hand, phil murphy run a campaign that wasn't seen as -- and he almost got defeated as well. so terry mcauliffe may not meet
11:16 pm
the best, but he was not the only problem for democrats and what happened yesterday, brian. >> on this night after the election night, great thanks to our starting line, susan page, jacqueline alemany we, eugene robinson, thank you so much for staying up with us. yet another night. coming up for us, more on what both parties might take away. what they might learn from last night's results. and later, it's a new book with a very provocative title. look racism. its author will join us here tonight to talk about the fact that he just might have stumbled upon a potential political suicide mission for the democrats. all of it, as the 11th hour is just getting underway, on this night after election night. r election night

11:20 pm
more as the complete inaction, and almost keystone cop behavior of the democrats on capitol hill in the house and senate, you know, you decide whether you want to blame the moderates or the progressives are both. but it looked terrible. it was terrible. it sent the message to democrats the election promises were not being delivered, and therefore it wasn't that important to both. >> not the message democrats wanted to center voters for sure on what transpired last night in virginia, nbc news points out this, the fact that glenn youngkin won by keeping former president donald trump at a cautious distance, even as terry mcauliffe and the democrats presented them as one in the same gives party operatives confidence that a post jump playbook and work.
11:21 pm
back with us tonight, robert gibbs senior advisor, press secretary under president obama. he also hosts the hacks on tax podcast. and we bill kristol veteran of the reagan and bush administration, and editor at large at the bulwark. gentlemen, good evening. welcome. it was indeed a long night. mr. gibbs i'd like to begin with your reaction to last night as you may have anticipated the question. >> look brian, i'm a brave fan. and that was the best thing that happened last night. in terms of politics, it was terrible. i think democrats had an awful night. i think there is no real sugar coating. that on a lot of different levels. we won virginia a year ago by ten. we lost it by 12. we won new jersey by 16, and we barely won it a year later. again, i don't think there is
11:22 pm
much to like about last. night and i think, if you're a democrat, you have to wonder why didn't we run a campaign animists that was focused on the future. why did we depend on donald trump to be the one and only bogeyman. the only thing we had to run a campaign against. i think there is a lot of questions that we should ask ourselves, and we ask the campaign, and we should ask capitol hill why we didn't look like we were a governing party for the last three or four months. so, i think there's a lot of questions asked, and i'm worried, brian, there aren't great answers at this point. >> bill, over to you, what did youngkin's win mean to you as an observer as someone with many years of politics experience under your belt? are there any convertible lessons from it for the party, or was it a one-off? >> i don't think it was a one-off. but i think for mcauliffe's campaign, i would say if he wasn't great, you know, he lost
11:23 pm
last -- and murphy, the governor of new jersey lost relative to his own show in 2017. the democrats have destroyed their ballots, they destroyed their bell in new jersey, they discovered great losses and the nascar long county, upstate new york, it was a repeat for the party of, thing which is more worrisome. it was a wave, you've got a better candidate, democrats and governor candidate here in the virginia. i guess, pretty flick a republican honestly, she lost. two i, think that's not good news, the because you can't blame it on one bad candidate. you've got to stay with the democrat was over around the country. or we have to mention a few state. but still, there's, among the
11:24 pm
people voted -- and second, i think this is important, it's not that i regret this. it's not disqualified as a republican party, it's not repeated, it's not repudiated, it is not repeated the big lie. people will announce how foolish the democrats keep running against trump, that is not fair exactly. mcauliffe kept saying, is that we kind of a governor who goes on with trump's big lie. it wasn't simply that he should be -- to me that is kind of an important issue, to the voters, not imported. >> robert, i want to pause, here i'm going to show you a clip from yesterday, this is dealey plaza in dallas texas. >> did we land on them or? [noise] >> did we land on the moon? >> so that is tragic in and of itself. but then consider why there were hundreds of people in dealey plaza, in texas, because
11:25 pm
of a qanon rumor that none other than jon kennedy junior was coming back and he's been in hiding all these years, so the qanon rumor goes, complete disrespect, obviously to members of the kennedy and the families that would do almost anything in the world to bring back their loved ones, it said. it is tragic. it happened yesterday. and daily plaza, in dallas texas, they went home disappointed, they did not get to see their man, who by the way is going to run, apparently, as vp with a ticket with donald. trump but robert, i'd run this to make a point. this is a new dynamic. the democrats have to deal with this. remember, if it's the democratic response. surely people will realize the crime in the phone calls with the ukrainian leaders. surely people will see the rapid crime of one six. surely people will see those crazy people in dealey plaza
11:26 pm
and know that it is not right. but, what is the other solution? because those solutions haven't worked. >> look, i can't explain what happened in dallas, it's mesmerizing if you will. and, look, we has a probable grapple with a new way of doing campaign in an age of misinformation and disinformation. i don't think either tactically, or strategically the democrats are altogether that ready for this. look, i also think part of that to, i think we as democrats have to get away from this idea that somehow if we could just explain in 90 seconds or less all the policies implications in bonuses that we have for you that can somehow convince -- >> i think it's time for us to break down and think through how we win races, why we've
11:27 pm
been races, why did people vote differently in 2021 than in 2020. i think it is time for a real look under the hood by the democratic party, because, i don't think there's a lot of easy answers. >> hard to look under the hood while the cars running. at 60 miles an hour. but so be it. and i thank you for the candor. embedded in that answer. the good news is, both of these gentlemen are staying with us, while i slip in a break. where does would happen last night leave things like, voting rights and the biden agenda? rights and the biden agenda? - grammarly business turned my marketing team into rock stars.

11:30 pm
11:31 pm
the partisanship, we've got to step back from the politicization that is driving this conversation. i think we should be able to agree to meaningful improvement that will help ensure that all our elections are free, fair, accessible to all americans. >> alaska senator lisa murkowski standing as the only republican in the chamber to vote in favor of moving forward with the john lewis voting rights act. it is the second time in the past two weeks the gop has refused to even allow debate on voting rights protections, another of the presidents
11:32 pm
priorities. thankfully still with us, robert gibbs, and bill crystal. bill, a question for you. last night's results make it results as a harder or easier to pass all or part of the biden's agenda? do you agree with the jeff green field argument that democrats could misplayed this and go to the nice people living in the hauler and say we are putting modems on hold, thanks to this bill you are going to get rural wi-fi service and then get beaten on trans bathroom and crtc? >> i am a little skeptical at the cultural war and republicans like to think, there is not that much in the board of education around the country but the republican governor -- into north carolina couple of years ago, i'm not sure that youngkin talked about that but
11:33 pm
they sort of covered in a matter business background and i think that sort of were more happy about well-rounded in public school that it will be open quickly enough perhaps as the bureaucracy running things the better to vote -- the less that they would -- maybe resonate a little bit. so, i am not so scared -- they the cultural war of the democrats to do a better job of getting back, but on your first question, which is the most important when i think. i am not sure what they should do -- joe biden has to lead the party, to lead the. country robin was very candid, in his very first efforts in the cycle, here at the end of the day, it is not the congressional leadership that makes you think that it have, been the legislation on the hill will look at it as though -- but i would look at it as the council focus groups, the string voters, and the independent voters, some democrats, they don't really know what is joe biden's message.
11:34 pm
what does he want an apart from his infrastructure bill. a basic maybe, okay, they are not really convinced about. that but what is the whole point of the biden administration so to speak? and i think you could think different about it frankly, it could go a little centered, i would prefer more, centered but we need to come to a group and show some restraint, honestly. and i think voters would respect that. robert, i don't think anyone has pair frayed rogers and hammers thin but i'm going to, here's the question, how do you solve a problem like joe manchin? >> well look, i actually think joe manchin wants to get to yes, on the build back better agenda. i just think it'll take him a little bit of time. and it's frustrating and it's not great, and democrats don't have a great amount of time. but i think we were moving in this direction earlier in the week, in later last week. i think he is going to get there, i really do.
11:35 pm
i think to pick up one point bill said that's important. i get a fear that joe biden thinks he's still in the u.s. senate sometimes. and i think he's gotta do is go up on capitol hill, or better yet call capitol hill down, and be the president of the united states. and dictates democrats, hey, we've had a long discussion we've had meetings between the progressives in the moderates, and we've had the moderates and the progressives together. here's what i want to do. and let's go do this. the reports even last week when he went up to capitol hill, he never asked the democratic caucus to vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill. i don't know why you bring the president to capitol hill to close the deal, and not ask them to close the deal. i think, there's some strength in here as bill said, i think democrats have to show the country, we are capable and willing and able to govern. i think it's been a tough three months, there's a lot of
11:36 pm
anxiety in the country, and i think democrats and joe biden have to get to leading. this country and meeting it in a better direction. >> there are interns on the hill who know that where presidential power is concerned, exert it and use it. when there's a reasonable chance that it's going to be successful. robert gibbs, bill kristol, gentlemen, thank you so much for adding your voices to our broadcast tonight. we really appreciate it. coming up for us, a noted thinker and author is here with us, he noticed something about last night's election results. because he just wrote a book about it. lts. because he just wrote a book about it about it [gaming sounds] just think, he'll be driving for real soon. every new chevy equinox comes standard with chevy safety assist, including automatic emergency braking. find new peace of mind. find new roads. chevrolet. you don't get much time for yourself.
11:37 pm
so when you do, make it count with crest pro-health. it protects the 8 areas dentists check for a healthier mouth. the #1 toothpaste brand in america. crest. i think the first stages of a
11:38 pm
11:39 pm
repudiation, are growing backlash to the excesses of culture, is manifested, in a lot of racial animists. that you see draped up again in critical race theory and others. but there is a lot to be heard, from the american voter if you
11:40 pm
listen. to the results across the country, in this election. and democrats, need to heed them. >> to that point, from our friend steve schmidt, our next warns against the influential followers of a new sort of religion, in his newest book. woke racism. jama quarter rates quote, third wave anti racism, in its laser focused on an oversimplified sense of what racism is, and what one does about it. it's content to harm black people in the name of what we can only term, dogma, it's a lot, back with us tonight easily our favorite linguist around here, the aforementioned jean mcmorris, are armed with a ph.d. in linguist from stanford. he's a professor at columbia in new york. and a contributor at the atlantic. his latest book is, woke racism. how a new religion has betrayed black america. in the top ten list of the new york times bestseller's. it's a pleasure to have you and
11:41 pm
i'm so curious having written this, having just released this, you're watching last night's returns, how much of the theme echoed back to you? and you have a kind of realization that we may be approaching a realization on the part of the democrats, that the language of woke-ism might just be political suicide? >> i think that what we're seeing is definitely a push back against the excesses that we've seen, since june of 2020, excess does not mean for example that you teach about racism and slavery and schools. what's going on is in many school districts, both private and public schools, there is a general message being taught, that to be white, is to be culpable. that the whole american experiment can be argued has been polluted by racism, in the essence of being black is being
11:42 pm
oppressed. a great many people are under the impression, that that really is a suitable education. that teaching kids that particular perspective on things, is what an education is supposed to be. the problem is that's not something that all reasonable people would agree with. instead what we have is this word game. where somebody calls would i just said, critical race theory, in somebody else says will that's not what's in papers that the legal scholars wrote 30 and 40 years ago. that is not being taught to erodes. that's not what anybody meant so. the terms of all of this are extremely frustrating. there are certain people brilliant wise people who are assisting that if anyone who doesn't like the direction this so many schools are taking in terms of what they think as instruction, is a kind of bigot. that what this is racism rearing its ugly head. when really it's just that people will differ on how slavery and racism are taught
11:43 pm
in schools, and when they're told that they're fools for requesting, it have a right in this could start affecting elections. we'll see more of these oversimplified analyses, that all it is his racism a backlash and ignorance. when really, it's something much more complex. it's that there's less and then there's radical left, and the idea that radical left, as a default human morality that's a tough proposition you have to defend you can't just throw it out there in assume that everyone will degree and called the moral perverts if they don't. >> to your point about the power of words in terminology, it's always a great fun to see you on with bill maher. and it was during your last segment, talking about this book, that bill made the point, give people a moment, to take in the changes in modern society, and the resulting terminology. people walk around with buckets of both fear and guilt. knowing that if they step one
11:44 pm
foot wrong, when trying to describe anyone on the lgbt -- they will be called out, perhaps crushed and killed. >> that's the problem. that's why i call this sort of thing a religion. we're dealing -- on saturday night live from years ago. for example, some people might need some time, we always write about this, under this new regime, the idea is that meeting some time, because it's not about battling power differentials. needing some time, is wrong. it's that you are against a certain kind of person, and you need to be shouted down with recreational mockingly. that's not right. that's not the way society should be run. what we're seeing, it allows this book is about, is a certain kind of person, who wields a certain kind of power
11:45 pm
in that way, really think they're doing the world good, i don't i think that they have found a solution, imagine how that must, feel it must feel good, but what they do, is if you don't agree with, them you call your racist on social media, and that feels like being called a pedophile to most of us modern, because of the progress that's been made on racism in racial attitudes, and that means that most people, nine out of ten, most people watch these people that are called the elect. and they are afraid so they pretend to agree. and so we're dealing with a whole culture of fear. a reign of terror, the people in question don't mean to do this, they really think that they're doing good, but those of us who know, that they have falling into a detour, have to start standing up to these people and saying, not get out but just sit back down the way you were before june 2020. and stop insisting that if you don't get your way you're surrounded by moral perverts. because that's not how the world works.
11:46 pm
>> to the folks watching who are all potential book buyers, at the end of this book, there are suggestions for fighting racism, and along the way you will learn what third wave anti racism is, it's is a powerful and thought provoking book, our thanks to a friend of this broadcast, it's author is always a pleasure, come on anytime, it's called woke racism, how a new religion has betrayed black america, thank you john, coming up, the arms are getting smaller, but the shots are going in. th shots are going in shots are going in upgrade it. you dunk it? doggy-bone it? ha-ha! slam it, wham it, strawberry jam it? we upgrade it! get a 5g phone on us with select plans. every customer. current, new or business. because everyone deserves better. and with plans starting at just $35. better costs less than you think. wondering what actually goes into your multi-vitamin?
