Todd: OMG Hillary Clinton had a

private e-mail system which is

the biggest scandal ever!



Obama: all my blackberry 
records are archived



Todd: you still use a blackberry?



Obama: once you go blackberry 
you never go back



Todd: this plays into perceptions

that the Clintons play by their

own set of rules



Audience: damn Clintons



Todd: she turned over 90% of e-mails

but she chose which ones



Audience: just like Jeb



Todd: the Clintons follow the letter

of the law but not the spirit of the law



Ghost: I am the spirit of scandals past!



Todd: it plays to a narrative



Audience: oh no not the narrative



Todd: Obama called her secretive in 2008



Todd: also Clinton has been 
accepting foreign donations!



Audience: it's scandalpalooza



Todd: Clinton attacked secret

e-mail accounts in 2008



Todd: also Benghazi!



[ break ]



Todd: Senator do you see a

problem with this perception-wise?



Feinstein: there was no law

only vague regulations



Todd: yes but perception-wise this is bad



Feinstein: other Secretaries of State

used personal e-mail accounts too



Todd: true including Colin Powell



Feinstein: she needs to explain

what she did and why



Todd: like what was the deal

with this home brew server?



Feinstein: right



Todd: will we still be fighting

al-Qaeda in thirty years?



Feinstein: yes



Todd: whoa



Feinstein: we should pass an

unlimited authorization to use

all force against ISIS



Todd: is that a blank check?



Feinstein: damn right – we need

to give the President a blank check!



Todd: will that crush ISIS?



Feinstein: we need the Sunnis

to step and kill ISIS!



Todd: they're not doing it yet



Feinstein: Iran is invading the middle east!



Todd: but Iran is our ally against ISIS



Feinstein: we need Russia and

Iran to help us defeat Syria!



Todd: okay



Feinstein: but we need

Syria to help us defeat ISIS!



Todd: damn this is complicated



Feinstein: this is why we need

a nuclear agreement with Iran



Todd: wait so we need to cut a deal

with Iran so they will help us defeat ISIS?



Feinstein: it couldn't hurt



Todd: what about Bibi's speech to Congress?



Feinstein: that's not how an ally acts



Todd: strong words



Feinstein: Bibi is arrogant and

he tried humiliate our President



Todd: what about Bob Menendez?



Feinstein: I wish him well



Todd: do you think he should 
continue in the Senate?



Feinstein: of course

Todd: thanks for coming

[ break ]

Todd: Welcome Lindsey

Graham: good morning Charles 



Todd: what about Iran?



Graham: I'd rather do nothing and

let them build a bomb than do

something and let them build a bomb



Todd: they're helping us against ISIS



Graham: maybe but they're not good guys



Todd: but Iraq is our ally and they like Iran



Graham: Iran is our true enemy!



Todd: not ISIS?



Graham: yes they are

an evil regime!



Todd: don't mince words Linds



Graham: they are religious fanatics!



Todd: wow



Graham: I fear Iran more than ISIS



Todd: do you really?



Graham: yes I fear them very much



Todd: how much fear do you have?



Graham: I have so much fear Todd



Todd: unemployment is now

the lowest since 2008



Graham: that's not good enough!



Todd: we've got the best

nationwide job growth since 1984



Graham: those are terrible numbers



Todd: you don't see any 
good news here?



Graham: no one is looking for work!



Todd: okay



Graham: Obamacare will kill jobs someday!



Todd: I see



Graham: those evil Sunnis are

trying to drive down the price of oil!



Todd: do you have a private e-mail account?



Graham: I have never sent

a single e-mail in my life



Todd: way to stay in touch



Graham: I'm just being smart



Todd: what will the e-mails 
reveal about Benghazi?



Graham: did Clinton use the

word terror in real time?



Todd: what a salient question



[ break ]



Todd: is this e-mail scandal the

greatest scandal is history?



Walter: this feeds into the narrative

that she's Hillary Clinton



Todd: she's not defending herself!



Raju: it's going to fester and hurt her



Martin: Democrats who would

defend her don't know what to say



Todd: Republicans hid their e-mails too



Parker: but they're the Clintons so it's worse



Todd: they are secretive



Parker: they are controlling



Martin: it's not the e-mails – it's that

Americans don't trust the Clintons



Todd: right



Martin: it's the narrative!



Parker: she's hiding something!



Todd: does Biden jump in?



Walter: no



Raju: there's no Democratic bench!



Todd: omg the Republicans are

at an actual cattle call in Iowa!



O'Donnell: Jeb talked up his conservative

credentials but didn't shy away from

being soft on immigration



Todd: interesting



O'Donnell: people in Iowa were

interested in what he had to say



Todd: anyone else making news?



O'Donnell: I was surprised at good receptions

for Chris Christie and even George Pataki



Todd: George who?



O'Donnell: but the man of the

hour is still Scott Walker



Todd: thanks Kelly



Obama: what could be more American

than the downtrodden coming together

than change the course of the nation?



State Senator: much has changed

but there are still two Selmas –

we got to different churches and

our kids are in separate schools



High School Principal: 90% of our students

are African-American and many get free lunch



State Senator: Selma is not 
yet the shining example that 
we hoped it would be



Todd: there was violence just to

prevent people from trying to vote –

including John Lewis who was badly injured

[ break ] 

Todd: welcome Congressman Lewis

Lewis: good morning Chuck

Todd: what are your memories of Selma?



Lewis: it was an orderly peaceful

non-violence walk to register to vote

 


Todd: so far so good



Lewis: we were arrested and beaten



Todd: wow



Lewis: we saw a sea of Alabama 
state troopers and they said it 
was an unlawful march



Todd: then what happened?



Lewis: we tried to kneel and pray



Todd: you were kneeling?



Lewis: they beat us with sticks

and trampled us with horses



Todd: damn



Lewis: I was beaten and

lost consciousness



Todd: it would be totally
understandable if you were bitter



Lewis: I was bitter back then

but I'm not bitter now



Todd: why not?



Lewis: I found the way of non-violence

and peace as a way of life



Todd: impressive



Lewis: we were taught never to

hate even if we were killed



Todd: I feel like we Americans are 
self-segregating by race and class



Lewis: we have a long way to go



Todd: Ferguson and Staten Island

seem to have created a new movement

among young people



Lewis: and Florida



Todd: right



Lewis: they are saying we 
must take action against racism 
and inequality and injustice



Todd: gosh the rate of uninsured
dropped in half in Arkansas and Kentucky 

Todd: they are red states with Democratic governors



Todd: some states had no drop but

Massachusetts was already covering everyone



Todd: the rate of uninsured went up in

Kansas but they rejected Obamacare

[ break ]



Todd: last week we talked about how

both sides are to blame for a Republican

politician committing suicide over 
a Republican whispering campaign 
that he was Jewish



Todd: to condemn bullying here

is Claire McCaskill



Todd: Senator was this the politics

of personal destruction?



McCaskill: definitely – although it

was an extreme reaction over

having a Jewish grandparent



Todd: this drives people out of public office!



McCaskill: voters have to punish candidates

who play to lowest common denominator



Todd: the problem is the internet!



Schilling: it is the Internet!



Todd: right



Schilling: my message to the young

kids is the Internet is forever



Todd: people like me saw you go

after online bullies and said thank

god someone did that



Schilling: damn right I am heroic for

defending my daughter online



Todd: what new laws do we need



Schilling: I don't blame the Internet –

I blame a permissive society



McCaskill: we need to go after

the dark money in politics



Todd: Curt are you over the Internet



Schilling: not at all I don't let bullies

drive me off the twitter machine!



Todd: well I think we all want to

get toxicity out of politics



Todd: 42% of primary voters don't 
like Jeb Bush – the only ones with 
higher negatives are Graham and 
Christie and Trump



Martin: all they know is his name

is Bush and he supports common

core and immigrants



Todd: the name Bush is pretty bad



Parker: that's true but once people

get to know him they will realize he's

not a failure like his father or an

idiot like his brother



Todd: even Saturday Night Live

got in on Hillary's e-mails!



Todd: it feels like she doesn't trust the press



Walter: well she doesn't



Walter: Jeb can change what

people think of him but Hillary Clinton's

image is cemented for all time



Todd: I had to follow Abraham Lincoln!



Parker: I use Abe Lincoln

in my writing classes



Todd: it's harder to write a

short speech than a long one



Parker: that's right



Todd: and that's another

episode of Meet The Press
