Todd: Good morning and welcome
to the Trump Hour starring Donald Trump
brought to you by Donald Trump
Todd: so far Donald Trump has denigrated
Blacks and Latinos and Veterans and
women but he went to far when he
insulted Fox News' Megan Kelly
Todd: Erick Erickson disinvited
Trump from his Hate Women Rally
Trump: Erickson is a deviant!
Jeb: do we want to insult women voters?
Erickson: those fat pigs?
Rubio: Donald Who?
Todd: welcome Donald Trump
Trump: just get to the questions Chuckles
Todd: would you like to
apologize to Megyn Kelly?
Trump: no not at all
Todd: are you sure?
Trump: Newsmax thought
I won the debate!
Todd: well that settles it
Trump: what is said was appropriate!
Todd: literally no one thinks that
Trump: only a deviant would think
I was assume I was referring to
Todd: but you did demonize her
Trump: she was very angry because
I insulted her lesbian lover Rosie O'Donnell
Todd: please continue
Trump: I was going to say blood
was coming out of her ears and nose
Todd: of course you were
Trump: I went to the Wharton school
– there is no menstruation there!
Todd: so why not apologize?
Trump: because I'm not wrong!
Todd: you seem allergic to admitting
you were wrong about anything
Todd: I said the same thing
about of Chris Wallace
Todd: oh okay
Trump: he's a loser shadow
of his better father by the way
Todd: you overreacted
to a innocuous question
Trump: frankly I wanted to talk about
jobs but ended up insulting all women
Trump: Erick Erickson is a known loser
Todd: you seem to call everyone
you disagree with ugly or a loser
Trump: or in your case both
Todd: that hurts Donald
Trump: there's a chipmunk
on your face dummy
Todd: there's a beaver on your head jerk
Trump: I think I like you Ted
Todd: that was fun but are
you too impolitic to be President?
Trump: in the middle east they're
chopping off heads and you're
talking about verbal put-downs
Todd: Presidents generally aren't that rude
Trump: we need more foul and
repulsive language - not less
Trump: political correctness
is killing America!
Trump: Jeb Bush wants to
cut health care funding for women
– isn't that a worse insult?
Todd: I suppose it could be
Trump: I respect the women
and will help the women
Todd: which women?
Trump: all of the women
Todd: I see
Trump: I put the women in construction jobs
Todd: yet you insult women
based on their looks
Trump: I was attacked viciously and
when I'm attacked I fight back
Todd: that's your reason?
Trump: these ugly broads can't
attack me because I'm so good looking
Todd: please continue
Trump: political correctness is killing us!
Todd: so you've said
Trump: China is taking our jobs and
their chicks are even uglier than ours!
Todd: Mr Trump please stop
Trump: I'm talkin about some
real dogs Chuck!
Todd: all right all right
Trump: in the whole debate
no one asked me about jobs
Todd: that's sad
Trump: I never got a chance to
talk about how Mexicans are rapists
because all I'm asked about is
how much I insult women
Todd: maybe next time
we can talk about that
Trump: I hope so Dick
[ break ]
Todd: welcome back panel
Todd: can Donald Trump be President?
Todd:you don't sound sure
Hewitt: the GOP debate skipped the
important issues like Iran and
cybersecurity and Clinton's e-mails
Todd: well whose fault is that?
Hewitt: the loser in this debate was the GOP
Todd: panel can nothing stop Trump?
Mitchell: he's teflon – he's even
attacked popular conservative women!
Mitchell: what's next – kittens and puppies?
Todd: voters seems to like this crazy man
Brooks: he's like a religious zealot
and we all know bad religion is
Todd: what can we do to stop him?
McGhee: it's not about Trump –
it's about the GOP having a problem
with women in general
Todd: what do you mean?
McGhee: like with women's health
and women's wages
Todd: okay okay
Hewitt: we need to get behind
Carly Fiorina – she bashed
Donald Trump tweeting from a
meeting with famous sexist Erick Erickson
Todd: sounds like a plan
Hewitt: Trump is going to fade!
Todd: you're engaging in wishful thinking
Hewitt: I don't think so
Todd: that's exactly what someone
engaging in wishful thinking would say
[ break ]
Todd: welcome Senator Rubio
Rubio: what's up chuck
Todd: do you support allowing
abortion for rape and incest
Rubio: yes I do but not really
Todd: I see
Rubio: I believing in restricting
abortion by months or weeks
or days or even hours
Todd: how specific of you
Rubio: I'll support any law
that restricts choice
Todd: so why allow exceptions
Rubio: rape is horrifying
but pregnancies do happen
Todd: that's a bold admission
Rubio: we should make the morning
after pill available over the counter
Todd: okay then
Rubio: but I feel all fetus lives matter
Todd: got it
Rubio: but other people
insist on those exceptions
Todd: how do resolve
the issue of the baby vs the mother
Rubio: no doubt women have
rights to their body
Todd: oh do tell
Rubio: for sure it's not
easy to make that choice
Todd: no it's not
Rubio: don't pretend this is easy
Todd: I don't
Rubio: but I'm always going
to err on the side of big government
Todd: how does a President
decide when to ignore the public?
Rubio: on foreign policy you
have to because most people
are really stupid
Todd: they can't find Iraq or Iran on a map
Rubio: they can't find America on a map!
Todd: and that's using a map of America
Rubio: I warned all about ISIS
Todd: you did?
Rubio: the President has access
to super secret information regular
people don't know
Todd: like 'the earth is round'
and 'climate change is real'
Todd: Bob Gates said pulling out
of the Iran deal would be a bad idea
Rubio: he also gave us Windows Vista
Todd: um right
Rubio: Russia does not always
act in the interest of the U.S.
Todd: well no kidding
Rubio: Russia's emotions should
not impact our foreign policy
Todd: you think not?
Rubio: that applies to other countries too
Todd: even Israel?
Rubio: Iran is planning to launch
long range missiles on Iowa
Todd: are you serious?
Todd: what do you owe your big donors?
Rubio: I have an agenda and that's that
Todd: so your rich donors
have no special access to you?
Rubio: not at all
Todd: so why doesn't that
apply to the Clintons?
Rubio: because those are foreigners
who get of course special favors
from the Clinton State Department
for donating cash
Todd: so why doesn't that apply to you?
Rubio: because I'm awesome
Todd: some guy on Facebook
wants legal pot
Rubio: legalizing pot is bad!
Todd: so you would arrest
people for having a little pot?
Rubio: you betcha!
Todd: check the Meet the Press website –
you won't believe Marco Rubio's
One Simple Trick for Stopping Abortion
Todd: Spoiler alert: it's IUDs
[ break ]
Todd: let's look at the latest polls!
Todd: debate winners – Fiorina and Trump!
Todd: losers – Trump and Paul
and Bush and Christie
Todd: who is atop the polls now –
Trump and Cruz and Carson and Fiorina
Todd: also in the debate Chris Christie
reminded voters Republicans brought
them the greatest day of their lives – 9/11
[ break ]
Todd: omg Chuck Schumer
opposes the Iran deal!
Todd: welcome Senator
McCaskill: hello Charles
Todd: do you support the deal with Iran?
McCaskill: I'm looking at Iranian money
Todd: it's a lot of cash
McCaskill: yes but they might get
the cash anyway even if we walk
away from inspections
Todd: so it's a bad deal!
McCaskill: no necessarily
Todd: but we don't trust Iran
McCaskill: that's the point
Todd: Obama is being very mean
by pointing out the media was wrong
about the war in Iraq
McCaskill: well you were
Todd: is that fair? Is that fair?
Is it?? isn't it unfair??
Todd: it's soooo unfair!!
Obama is meeeaaan!!!
McCaskill: if we turn down a
chance to inspect that would be bad
Todd: but isn't Obama mean and bad?!?
McCaskill: Calm down Todd
Todd: you support Hillary –
what about Joe Biden?
McCaskill: what about him?
Even if he runs I'll still support Hillary
Todd: hmm I hadn't thougt of that
Todd: isn't her campaign failing?
McCaskill: no she's a fighter
Todd: are you rooting for Donald Trump?
McCaskill: ha ha maybe
Todd: is he hurting the GOP brand?
McCaskill: Todd Akin was principled
– cuckoo but principled
Todd: sounds about right
McCaskill: but Trump is just
a sexist racist buffoonish
Todd: thanks for coming Claire
[ break ]
Todd: Governor is Trump
consuming the GOP?
Kasich: when women touch
things they make them better
Todd: okay but is Trump damaging
the Republican party?
Kasich: once we have a nominee
that person will define the party
Todd: I see
Kasich: Bernie Sanders is socialist!
Todd: Time magazine compared
you to Pope Francis
Kasich: the Pope is a communist
but he seems like a nice person
Todd: a bit
Kasich: the Lord gave us the
environment to use but not abuse
Todd: is man-made climate change real?
Kasich: the science is out on that
Todd: no it isn't
Kasich: you can't destroy jobs
based on some crazy-ass theory
of so-called climate change
Todd: Erick Erickson doesn't like you
Kasich: are you sure that's a
real person and not a cartoon character
Todd: no I'm not
[ break ]
Todd: the media is in love with Jon Kasich
Hewitt: yes but he's too compassionate
Todd: well we're all flawed in some way
Hewitt: we should talk about
Clinton's e-mails every single day
Todd: are liberals worried about Kasich?
McGhee: the GOP says they care
about poor people but only offers tax cuts
Mitchell: the media is ignoring Hillary's e-mails!
Mitchell: if she's smart Hillary
will talk about Megan Kelly
Todd: David which Republican
has the best ideas?
Brooks: never mind ideas –
we should choose the person
with the best political skills
and that's Marco Rubio
Mitchell: I agree Rubio is very skilled
but Jon Kasich is the media's white whale
– a seemingly moderate Republican
Todd: Bernie Sanders was interrupted
by some very rude black people
Todd: Heather why is a guy who
knew Martin Luther King being attacked
for police killing black people?
McGhee: because he draws
the biggest crowds
Mitchell: Bernie is weak on race
Todd: Chris Christie twice claimed
he was a U.S. attorney on 9/11
which is a flat-out lie
Hewitt: it's a big deal
Brooks: Trump is a presence
in out deep unconscience
McGhee: bragging about four
bankruptcies is a bit tin-earned
Todd: why is he so popular?
Mitchell: I don't like him
Todd: 25 million people tuned
in to see Donald Trump
Hewitt: I want Trump on stage
to draw attention to the fact
that Obama is mean
Mitchell: I just cannot see my
beloved GOP nominating him
Brooks: candidates should
talk about America
Todd: you think?
Brooks: voters crave patriotism
Hewitt: we should start a
land war with Russia
Todd: Carly Fiorina!
McGhee: she's a good debater
but wrong on policy
Todd: is she the best to take on Hillary?
McGhee: of course
Todd: and that's another
episode of Meet the Press
