Transcripts

00:04

Speaker 1: After voting for himself  yesterday in the state of Florida,  

00:13

Donald Trump said he doesn't care about Mike  pence not endorsing him. He insulted Mike pence,  

00:19

and then he delivered a bizarre word salad. When  he was asked whether he can come up with the money  

00:24

for the bond in his fraud trial. You will also  notice if you're watching these videos that his  

00:30

wife, I guess technically she still his wife  Melania has, we have proof of life of Melania.  

00:37

She appeared there to vote as well in the state  of Florida. She was asked, and we will play this  

00:42

as well. She was asked whether she might appear  on the campaign trail. She has been conspicuously  

00:47

missing from every Trump campaign event. Reports  are that she is essentially being paid not to  

00:53

divorce Trump. And that has renegotiated a prenup.  It's all crazy. I don't quite care about it,  

01:00

but you have these right wingers who claim to say  that the family is the most important thing. And,  

01:04

you know, they would never vote for a, an  effectively single candidate. And I'm not  

01:10

saying too much about Melania's absence, but  let's start at the beginning. Trump asked,  

01:15

what do you think about your own  former vice president not endorsing  

01:18

you? And Trump says, I couldn't care less. Speaker 3: Do you think you can afford. 

01:23

Speaker 2: To say to what the vice  president? Oh, I couldn't care less. 

01:27

Speaker 1: Now I have to credit Trump with one  thing. He got the phrase right. I couldn't care  

01:33

less. That's correct. I am sick and tired of. I  could care less. You couldn't care less. Trump  

01:42

gets it right. And I am not hesitant to give him  credit for that. He got it right. I couldn't care  

01:48

less. Let's listen to the rest of the anthem. Speaker 2: Oh, I couldn't care less. I couldn't  

01:53

care less. We need patriots. We need strong people  in our country. Our country is going downhill  

01:58

very fast, very rapidly. Millions of people  coming across the border, coming from jails,  

02:03

from prisons, coming from mental institutions  and insane asylums, terrorists. We need strong  

02:09

people in this country. We don't need weak people. Speaker 1: Yeah. So Trump saying pence is weak,  

02:14

I guess because he didn't try to overturn  the election. Trump repeating the lies  

02:17

that so-called mental institutions in other  countries are being emptied out across the  

02:23

border. There is no evidence of that. But this  is an unprecedented situation. And by the way,  

02:28

this clip is from Fox News. You may notice.  On Fox News a few days ago, Mike pence said  

02:34

he won't be endorsing Trump. That's major news.  It's not common that you would see such a rift  

02:40

between vice president and president. That  one doesn't endorse the other. And Fox News,  

02:45

since pence broke the news on their channel,  has barely mentioned it. Trump mentioning it.  

02:50

Good for him. Trump asked, are you going  to be able to come up with the money for  

02:54

the bond in the civil fraud trial? Trump says,  I've got plenty of cash, but they're trying to  

03:00

take it from me. Are you confident you can? Speaker 2: I built a great company. One of  

03:06

the greatest companies anywhere in the country,  especially when it comes to real estate. Have some  

03:11

of the greatest assets in the world. And this is  a rig trial. This was a rigged trial by a crooked  

03:16

judge and a crooked attorney general. Speaker 1: Notice that there isn't  

03:19

an answer here, at least not yet. Speaker 2: And we're fighting it out with. And  

03:23

we have a lot of cash and we have a great company,  but they want to take it away, or at least take  

03:27

the cash limit away. Billions of dollars in  value, billions of dollars in properties. But  

03:32

they'd like to take the cash away. So I can't use  it on the campaign. And this is just a corrupt  

03:38

group of people. It's election interference,  and we'll see how the courts rule on it. And  

03:43

I'll be I'll be guided. I'll be guarded. Use me. Speaker 1: So no real answer as to whether Trump  

03:49

has the money in legal filings, if his lawyers  have said he does not have the money. And,  

03:53

of course, this is causing a real problem for  Trump. There are many big time donors who are  

03:58

realizing if I give Trump money, it's probably  going to legal fees. Maybe he'll find some way  

04:03

to funnel it into settlements, although it's  still not totally clear to me whether that  

04:07

would be legal. So Trump has a real fundraising  issue. He has a real money issue as well. Trump  

04:12

asked during this post voting tirade, about  his comments regarding Jews. Jews who vote  

04:18

for Democrats must hate their religion and they  must hate Israel. And they'd better be careful,  

04:23

because Israel will get destroyed if they vote  for Democrats and Trump, apparently defending  

04:28

all of it and even kind of doubling down I. Speaker 2: By the courts, President Trump.  

04:32

Very unique. I think that the Democrats have been  very, very opposed to Jewish people. That's true.  

04:40

And to Israel. Well, you have to do is look at  Senator Schumer. What he did with Israel is a  

04:45

disgrace. And I think Israel will probably not  forget it very soon. It's a very sad situation. 

04:51

Speaker 3: Man is smart. Do you  think a six. Do you think you. 

04:57

Speaker 2: Say to what? Speaker 1: All right. So then now he's  

04:59

asked about the pence part. So basically Trump  just doubling down saying yeah you know Democrats  

05:03

are against Jewish people. And I guess because  Chuck Schumer levied some very sensible and sober  

05:10

criticisms of Benjamin Netanyahu. Now Schumer, who  is Jewish himself, also hates Jews. It's all very,  

05:17

very bonkers stuff. Melania. Appearing in public  for the first time. And who the hell knows how  

05:23

long? Asked will you be on the campaign  trail? And she plays a little coy with it. 

05:29

Speaker 3: How are you going  to return to the campaign trail  

05:31

with your husband? Stay tuned. Stay. Speaker 1: Stay tuned. Stay tuned is  

05:38

Melania's answer, which I'm editorializing here.  I apologize, but that's this is an opinion show.  

05:45

When I hear stay tuned, I'm hearing I have no  interest in getting out on the campaign trail,  

05:52

but I may end up doing it. If I can negotiate  a good enough deal in order to start doing some  

05:59

appearances. So there is Trump voting for himself.  Maybe Melania voted for Nikki Haley. Maybe. Maybe  

06:05

Melania is one of those 150,000 Nikki Haley  voters. Who the hell knows? She doesn't seem  

06:08

pleased to be there, but we are going to continue  to follow the path to the formal nominations over  

06:13

the summer, which we will, of course, cover. We'll  take a break. So many things to talk about today.
