Todd: omg what a big show we
have for you today!
Todd: the Pope is in America!
Todd: Fresh polls! Hillary only leads
by 15 points like a big loser!
Todd: she used to lead by 60 points
so she is doing terrible
Todd: welcome Hillary
Clinton: what's up Chuck
Todd: seven years ago you said
you want to be transparent and then
you created your own e-mail server
to hide your e-mails
Clinton: all of the e-mails I sent
were meant to be archived in
the government system
Clinton: I did it for convenience
which it wasn't
Todd: I guess not
Clinton: most of my e-mails were on
the government server and then I
turned them all over
Todd: but now we have found some
old e-mails you exchanged with General
Petraeus before you took office
Clinton: well you found those e-mails
didn't you – they're on a
Todd: but these pop up in January of 2009
Clinton: well I wasn't focused on
my e-mails during the transition
Todd: you must have been a little focused –
you put a personal server in your house
Clinton: no it was already sitting in
the basement in Chappaqua next
to the power tools and golf clubs
Todd: of course
Clinton: look I can't control all the
technical aspects of it and there were
gaps when the former Secretaries
didn't save their e-mails either
Todd: all right then
Clinton: I assumed any e-mail I sent
to any dot gov address would be archived
Todd: or you could have saved them
all in one place or used your own dot gov account
Clinton: I tuned over 55,000 e-mails and
agreed to testify although I insisted it
be public since I don't trust the GOP
to leak versions of what happened
Todd: did you turned over e-mails
voluntarily or were you forced to
Clinton: I think after the 8th or 9th Benghazi
hearing we went back and gave them everything
Todd: how about another explanation?
Clinton: another conspiracy theory?!?
Todd: the theory is you wanted to hide
your e-mails from a future Congressional
investigation which was inevitable
given you were involved
Clinton: there were a bunch of
pointless investigations in the 1990s
Todd: those were fun times
Clinton: and I beat them all and
was elected to the Senate
Todd: getting elected to a
dysfunctional body is the best revenge
Clinton: but there's no truth to your theory
Todd: can you reassure Democrats
there will no more scandals
Clinton: no because its a drip drip drip
with the fake invented scandals
Todd: Benghazi – good to the last drop
Clinton: I can't control what crazy
pretend scandal the Republicans
will come up with next
Todd: what about the deleted e-mails?
Clinton: I have no idea what's on them
Todd: why not?
Clinton: because I didn't want to be
accused of interfering with the investigation
Todd: I'm sure no one would ever do that
Clinton: I know I was sarcastic
with the media – sorry assholes
Todd: do the deleted e-mails
relate to the Clinton Foundation
Clinton: probably not
Todd: your poll numbers have
dropped because of this so-called scandal
Clinton: I get it but I hope people will
look at my experience and policy proposals
Todd: you have a trust deficit
Clinton: everything is fair game
– you have to earn this job
Todd: you take some of the blame?
Clinton: of course I take responsibility –
but I was subject to an endless barrage
in the 1990s and I will survive this too
Todd: you changed your mind on the
Iraq war and gay marriage and the
Keystone pipeline out of expediency
Clinton: all us of learn and change
and grow don't we?
Todd: not me
Clinton: Obviously supporting Dick
Cheney's war a huge mistake
Todd: yeah that seems like a no-brainer
Clinton: and sure I changed my mind
on gay marriage like everyone else
Todd: except Rick Santorum
Clinton: I didn't change my mind on Keystone
– I withheld my opinion until now
Todd: I see
Clinton: don't forget the U.S.
has lots oil and natural gas now
Todd: ok but Bernie Sanders supported
gay marriage before it was popular
Clinton: well whoopee for him
Clinton: look I'm like most people
on gay marriage I thought it was
weird and now I see it's about love
Todd: thanks for coming
[ break ]
Todd: OMG Trump and Carson are
tied at the top while Fiorina and Rubio
Todd: the rest are total losers
Todd: Carly Fiorina came from literally
zero to be tied for a distant third
Todd: welcome Carly
Fiorina: good morning Charles
Todd: at the recent debate you described
a scene on video that never happened –
can you admit to exaggerated?
Fiorina: no that really happened!
Todd: you saw that on videotape?
Fiorina: Planned Parenthood
threw condoms at me
Todd: darn I have to pay for mine
Fiorina: Planned Parenthood kills
babies to harvest their organs
– that is as fact
Todd: no it isn't
Fiorina: they are horrible and this
baby harvest must be stopped
Todd: even the people who made
the videos say it didn't happen
Fiorina: do you think this
is not happening Chucky
Todd: did it happen on tape like you said?
Fiorina: it is a fact that it happens
Todd: you are ducking the question about
what you saw on this non-existent videotape
Fiorina: I was a secretary!
Todd: um okay
Fiorina: the Washington Post lied!
Todd: this is about the character
of our nation – no one can deny
this is happening because it is
Todd: would you shut down the
government over Planned Parenthood?
Fiorina: of course! Let the Democrats
defend my lies!
Todd: so you shut down the government
even though your best argument
is a blatant lie
Fiorina: taxpayers are funding
butchery and a political slush fund
Todd: do you believe any money
for Planned Parenthood does any good?
Fiorina: Democrats are hypocrites for
not funding wingnut Pregnancy centers !
Todd: in 2010 you said Roe v Wade
was a decided issue and now you've
changed your mind
Fiorina: butchering live fetuses
to harvest their organs is wrong!
Fiorina: Democrats want to kill newborn babies in the hospitals!
Todd: you laid off workers at
Hewlett-Packard which is how
they got Mitt Romney
Fiorina: Bill Clinton and Barack Obama destroyed jobs!
Todd: of course they did
Fiorina: I saved HP during the
terrible time of the Bush Presidency
Todd: strong argument
Fiorina: I will run on my successful
record all day long!
Todd: you created zero jobs in America
Fiorina: that's false!
Todd: please continue
Fiorina: If I lied I could be help criminally liable
Todd: good luck then
Fiorina: I moved jobs to Texas
because they had low taxes
Todd: it wasn't their wonderful climate?
Fiorina: Democrats destroy jobs
all day long and all night too
Todd: why didn't another company
hire you as CEO?
Fiorina: because I didn't want to be
a CEO again – wrecking companies
is hard work
Todd: were you recruited?
Fiorina: yes I was offered lots of jobs
Todd: of course
Fiorina: but I wanted to use my
experience destroying HP to advise
the CIA on how to put al-Qaeda out of business
Todd: did John Boehner make
the right decision?
Fiorina: yes because he was a total loser
Todd: oh really
Fiorina: yes because he was complicit
in Planned Parenthood's butchery
Todd: would you get rid of Mitch McConnell?
Fiorina: we'll see – he seems like a loser too
Todd: so should he step aside?
Fiorina: probably – he seems like just
another pro-butchery Obama lackey
Todd: thanks for coming Carly
Fiorina: you too Ted
[ break ]
Todd: your reaction to the Clinton interview?
Mitchell: she's building deniability
Todd: always smart
Mitchell: but she can't talk about
policy because we won't let her
Brooks: she's always on the defensive
because the media won't stop attacking her
– that's her core problem
Robinson: your stayed on the e-mails
and she answered every question like a human
Todd: what about Carly Fioina's record at HP?
Ross Sorkin: she lost $60 billion
of her investor's money
Todd: is that a lot?
Ross Sorkin: HP was much
much worse than Dell
Todd: I'm an Epson man
Ross Sorkin: she missed
her targets repeatedly
Todd: she totally rejects reality
on the Planned Parenthood videos
Brooks: the general public
doesn't care about reality
Todd: good point
Brooks: unlike Clinton she doesn't accept
the idea that should have to answer questions
Mitchell: but the facts are that
she lied about Planned Parenthood
Todd: we've established that
Mitchell: but she's captured
the mood of America – angry and fact-free
Mitchell: Clinton is not popular
because she is not angry
Robinson: I was floored that Fiorina
simply won't accept reality – you can't
keep doing that because people will
keep bringing it up
Todd: will we revert to reality?
Brooks: god I hope so
Mitchell: Marco Rubio can save the establishment!
Ross Sorkin: the money will follow
the train leaving the station
Todd: one million people are going to Philadelphia! Voluntarily!
Todd: It's a miracle!
Todd: the Pope talks about helping
people in poverty like a socialist
Weigel: Merton advocated
non-violence and Day was a pacifist
Todd: Day and Merton were crazy
– what are the Pope's politics?
Weigel: they were radicals – but admirable people
Weigel: Day was a anti-war in WWII
which is pretty far out there
Todd: I'll say – people love that war
which is surprising because sequels
aren't usually more popular
Weigel: Merton was religious pan-religious monk
Todd: I love crepes
Weigel: he was an odd duck but like many
trappist monks a best-selling author
Todd: the Pope he talked about poor
people and climate change and didn't
talk about abortion or the gays
Weigel: yes but he's really concerned
about religious freedom especially
the right of old nuns not to have
a health insurance plans which
wastes precious sperm
Todd: how about the Pope?
Brooks: we're on a horizontal axis
and he's on a vertical axis
Todd: you're weird David
Brooks: he's exploding souls all over America
Todd: will this bond between Francis
and Obama be like the one between
JPII and Reagan
Mitchell: definitely – they've been
working together secretly on Cuba
and who knows what else
Todd: oooh dish
Mitchell: I was most moved
by the Pope at the World Trade Center
– I recommend you youtube it
Robinson: the Pope so moved
Boehner he up and quit
Todd: a Congressman swiped the Pope's
drinking glass and sprinkled the water
on his grandkids
Todd: he also took Obama's
glass from the inauguration
Ross Sorkin: he keeps the glasses?
Todd: stealing drinking glasses is his thing
Ross Sorkin: well okay
Todd: got to give him credit
Ross Sorkin: no doubt
Todd: and that's another
episode of Meet The Press
