Todd: welcome Senators
John McCain and Lindsey Graham
Johndsey: hi todd
Todd: Trump says criticizing
Russia is just a witch hunt
McCain: that's crazy
Graham: he thinks discovering
Russia hacked the election
will undermine his Presidency
Todd: he's right
Graham: but not even Democrats
are saying he's not going to
get to be the President
Todd: he gets the big round office
Graham: there's no doubt that
Podesta's e-mails were stole by
Russia and given to wikileaks
Todd: and now ISIS is enjoying
some sweet creamy risotto
Graham: soon Trump will be
the leader of all democracies
McCain: dear god
Todd: what is wrong with Donald Trump?
Graham: he's worried these
revelations about Russia
make him look like Putin's stooge
Todd: he's doing just fine on his own
Graham: as a democracy we cannot
ignore foreign interference in our elections
Todd: right – so we should
stop being a democracy
Graham: that's not what I meant
Todd: oh okay
Graham: all I ask is for Donald Trump
to show some integrity and leadership
and defend America
Todd: that seems like a lot actually
Graham: the KGB celebrated Trump's win!
Todd: high fives all around
McCain: it's obvious they committed
all kinds of crimes to elect this crazy person
Todd: was Trump was in
contact with Moscow?
McCain: we need to find out!
Todd: will we?
McCain: no because the GOP
doesn't want to know the answer
Graham: we should have a big
investigation and get to the bottom of this
Todd: wherever it leads?
Graham: I tell my Republican friends
if you are gleeful about this you are
hack and you are not a patriot
McCain: you tell 'em Linds
Graham: we should hit them where it hurts!
Todd: kick to the groin?
Graham: no I was thinking

Graham: I want to see U.S. soldiers
in the Baltics and seamen in tropics
Todd: admit it – wouldn't Hillary be better
McCain: no because of
Benghazi and Wikileaks
Graham: no because I really
want tax cuts for rich people
Graham: if he bashes Russia
then he will be a hero
Todd: judge Barack Obama for me
McCain: he's the first black President
proving there is no more racism in America
Todd: I thought as much

Assad which made me sad
Graham: Michelle is very dignified

Conway: sure Russia tried to
hack the election to try to elect
Donald Trump but they did not
succeed in electing Donald Trump
Todd: so he plans plans to punish Russia
Conway: I didn't say that!
Conway: Nyet! Nyet!
Todd: so panelists Trump is finally
accepting that Russia hacked
Mitchell: no he's not – only Kelly Conway did
Todd: close enough
Mitchell: it's not just hacking –
it's about fake news
Todd: are you talking about me
Mitchell: whether they
succeeded isn't the issue
Todd: although they did
Brooks: Trump's ego won't let
him admit he won with Putin's help
Todd: or anyone else's
Brooks: but this is really about
the post WWII order
Brooks: they see Russia as an ally of
Christian autocracy against radical Islam
Santelli: when a crime is committed
no one ever asks 'who did it?'
Todd: um really?
Santelli: the media is being so unfair!
Santelli: no one talked about
the hack at the time!
Santelli: this is about Hillary's
private e-mail server!
Todd: whoa Rick slow down
we can only take so much bullshit
Edwards: the next time it might Republicans
Brooks: Putin guys murders journalists!
Santelli: you all just hate Trump
Mitchell: that's not true Rick
Brooks: yes it is but that's not the point
Santelli: we hacked Angela Merkel
– everybody does it!
Mitchell: you sir an idiot
Santelli: there were no headlines at the time!
Santelli: it's all kabuki theater!
Santelli: the CIA are a bunch of liberals!
Mitchell: who is this lunatic

Todd: welcome Secretary Carter
Carter: nice to be here Chet
Todd: John McCain calls
Russia's hacking an act of war
Carter: well it's very serious
Todd: how should we respond
Carter: it's a secret but it's very clever
Todd: why won't Obama attack Russia?
Carter: well first we had to have a written report
Todd: Trump says “stupid”
people don't like Russia
Carter: Putin is very hostile to the U.S.
Todd: is Russia an ally against ISIS?
Carter: no not at all they lied
Carter: yeah we're doing it all on our own
Todd: well good luck
Carter: U.S. troops are on the
Tigris river today
Todd: say hi to Hammurabi for me
Carter: will do
Todd: Obama's Syria red line was the
most important world event since the
Peace of Westphalia
Carter: that might be overstating it
Todd: but there would be World Peace
if not for Obama's red line
Carter: the Russians are evil dipshits
Todd: should we bomb North Korea?
Carter: no Chuck
Todd: but I'm bored
Carter: we have 28,000 troops in
Korea with the slogan 'Fight Tonight'
Todd: but there's a big NFL game tonight
Carter: I didn't mean that literally
Todd: would we shoot down
a missile from North Korea?
Carter: you betcha
Todd: the Fort Lauderdale
shooter was a troubled vet
Carter: we take PTSD very seriously
Todd: have we done enough?
Todd: thanks for coming
[ break ]
Todd: time to crunch some numbers!
Todd: people with Obamacare
care voted for Trump
Todd: an Iowa country had a 50 %
drop in uninsured and still voted
overwhelming for Trump
Todd: same thing in Ohio
Todd: the GOP has no choice but
to pretend to repeal the ACA
Todd: but then they may take
away people's health care
Rand Paul: we have to replace
not just replace
Corker: yes we must do both simultaneously
[ break ]
Santelli: your health care
coverage will not be interrupted
so stop worrying you losers
Santelli: competition will solve all this!
Mitchell: if Republicans repeal the
ACA they will lose billions in tax revenue
Todd: lucky for us repeal will take years
Brooks: there's no proof of that
Santelli: people will have worse
health care but so what
Edwards: if they had replacement
for Obamacare they would have a
replacement for Obamacare
Todd: can Trump make a deal
to fix the ACA with Chuck Schumer?
Mitchell: Trump just called him a clown
Todd: what is a GOP version of Obamacare?
Edwards: Obamacare is the Republican plan
Santelli: cars have tires so stop whining
Brooks: the GOP won't
commit political suicide
Todd: are you sure?
Todd: Democrats made a mistake
when the didn't bring Republicans
into the health care process
Edwards: that's not what happened Charles
Santelli: I predict you will see compromise
Todd: I fucking love compromise!!
Todd: ha ha ha the Murdoch paper
NY Post want Hillary Clinton to run
for Mayor of New York
Mitchell: they just hate Bill Di Blasio
Mitchell it's a trial balloon
Brooks: she should go on
Todd: I love that idea!
Todd: we have a conflict of interest
because that show is on NBC
Todd but let's talk about it anyway
Todd: Trump is in a twitter feud
with Arnold Schwarzenegger
bashing the show
Todd: but he's still the executive
producer so he's trashing his own show
Santelli: yeah maybe not do that
Mitchell: and he sent that tweet
just before he got the security briefing!
Todd: he's a tweeting machine
Brooks: just ignore him
Mitchell he's the damn incoming president
Todd: Trump is interfering
with U.S. businesses
Santelli: it's okay when a Republican does it
Mitchell: we haven't even talked
about Trump's ethics issues!
Todd: sorry we're out of time
Todd: and that's another
episode of Meet The Press
