-After a week
of horrific attacks, President Trump has once again
attacked the media while his allies blame
both sides for violent rhetoric. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look”. [ Cheers and applause ] In moments of crisis like this, it is clear that Trump is not
only incapable of providing the moral leadership
expected of a president, he’s just incapable
of being human. I mean, look at him. The guy doesn’t even know how to
close an umbrella. [ Laughter ] And then when he can’t close it,
he just leaves it there. [ Laughter ] Trump’s the kind
of rich [bleep] who, when his car
runs out of gas, just leaves it
on the side of the road. [ Imitates Trump ] It’s me.
The Bentley is broken. No, it’s broken again. [ Normal ] Before Trump
put the umbrella down, he spent ten minutes
just yelling at it. [ Imitates Trump ]
Umbrella, close. Siri, close umbrella. Alexa, fire Siri. [ Laughter ] [ Normal ] In fact, Trump
is so incapable of mustering even the basic level of empathy that after the horrific
anti-Semitic attack at a synagogue in Pittsburgh
on Saturday, he decided to keep all of
his political events, and at one event,
he told the crowd he had considered canceling
not because of the attack, but because his hair was wet. -Somebody just said, “Your hair
looks different today”. I said, “Well, I was standing
under the wing of Air Force One doing a news conference
early this morning — a very unfortunate news
conference — and the wind was blowing, and the rain,
and I was soaking wet, and that’s what
I ended up with today”. [ Audience yells, cheers ] And I said, “At least you
know it’s mine”. [ Cheers and applause ] I said, “Maybe I should cancel
this arrangement because I have
a bad hair day”. -Oh, oh, oh, your hair got wet? Well, next time
just use an umbrella — Oh, no, no, I’m sorry. That’s on me.
That’s my fault. Trump also refused to cancel
his campaign rally on Saturday, and to justify that choice, he claimed that
the New York Stock Exchange reopened the day after 9/11. -With what happened early today, that horrible, horrible attack
in Pittsburgh, I was saying maybe
I should cancel both, this and that, and then I said to myself, I remember Dick Grasso,
a friend of mine, great guy. He headed up
the New York Stock Exchange, on September 11th, and the New York Stock Exchange was open the following day,
he said, and what they had to do
to open it, you wouldn’t believe.
-That’s right. You wouldn’t believe it,
and you shouldn’t because it didn’t happen. [ Laughter ] The Stock Exchange
remained closed for six days after
the terrorist attacks. These are — [ Applause ] These are
his most infuriating lies, the ones we can just check
by typing them into Google, the ones his supporters
will never check. At this point, if you type
“Is Trump lying” into Google, you’ll just get a page
that says, “Too many results. Try Bing”. Trump just lies freely. He imbibes conspiracy theories from media outlets
like Fox News, and then he spews them
to his supporters. For example,
after mail bombs were sent to a dozen targets
of Trump’s rhetoric, including
leading Democrats and CNN, prominent conservatives
on Twitter and Fox News began floating the theory that the bombs were
a so-called false flag meant to
help Democrats in the midterms. -Fox Business Network host
Lou Dobbs sent out this tweet,
writing, “Fake news, fake bombs. Who could possibly benefit
by so much fakery?” -We have the worst right-wing
bomb maker in history, or we have
a false flag operation. -The fact that these bombs
have not gone off is a great indication that I feel these are
false flag bombings. -At the risk of sounding like
a far right-wing lunatic, I have to say that I believe that this whole thing
was an elaborate hoax. -Of course, the other one
is that false flag, and there could be
someone in there, some Democrat,
low-level person — I’m not suggesting
anyone on the top — but who just decided,
“You know what? I’m going to put this out because two weeks
before a major election, who’s going to look
like the bad guy here? The Republicans”. -Fascinating. -No, it’s not fascinating. It’s dangerous. Someone just floated
an insane conspiracy theory on a channel watched by
millions of people, and you’re reacting like Spock
after a transporter malfunction. -Fascinating. -Now, Geraldo Rivera,
who claimed the bomb’s a hoax, did take it back
after an arrest was made, tweeting, “Never mind; outsmarted myself in conjuring
false flag operation designed to hurt
Donald Trump and GOP”. That’s how dumb Geraldo is. He got outsmarted by Geraldo. And then there’s Lou Dobbs,
the Fox Business host who tweeted
“Fake news, fake bombs”. Dobbs might be the most unhinged
conspiracy theorist on Fox, which is saying a lot given that Fox also employees
this guy — Sean Hannity is what you get if you gave Frankenstein
the brain of Alex Jones. [ Laughter ] But somehow Dobbs
has managed to out-crazy him, and not only is the president one of Dobbs’
most loyal viewers — he actually includes Dobbs
in major decisions. Earlier this year,
it was reported that Dobbs had been patched into
senior-level meetings that featured officials such as Senior Policy Advisor
Steven Miller and former Chief Strategist
Steve Bannon. Man, it is not easy to be the craziest person
in a meeting with Steve Bannon
and Steven Miller. Although in fairness to Dobbs,
when the meeting started, it was just supposed to
be Bannon, but then Miller
burst out of his chest. [ Laughter ] So, Dobbs — [ Cheers and applause ] So, Dobbs is one of many
prominent conservatives on TV and social media spreading baseless
conspiracy theories, and even before
the suspect was identified, he was on TV blaming Democrats for violence
against Republicans. Although watch as he tries to
get through this segment, has trouble reading,
and just gives up. -Be sure to vote
in our poll tonight. Do you believe it’s time
for Democratic leaders to denounce acts of violence against Republicans as President Trump — Targeted prominent, uh — Targeted, uh, Democrats — Uh, cast your vote on Twitter
@LouDobbs. -Oh, my goodness. Sounds like Grandpa
took too much Lunesta. [ Laughter ] “Grandpa! The bottle’s empty”. So, this is what the president
is consuming all day and then turning around
and spewing to his audience. In fact, just hours before
an arrest was made in the bombings on Friday, Trump went on Twitter to
again attack CNN, which just days earlier had been
the target of a mail bomb. -“Funny how lowly rated CNN
and others can criticize me at will, even blaming me
for the current state of bombs and ridiculously comparing this
to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing. Yet when I criticize them, they go wild and scream,
‘It’s just not presidential'”. -That’s because it’s their job
to cover you. Your job is to be president. They’re two different jobs. You’re like a guy
who goes in for a checkup and says, “Funny how the doctor
can check my prostate, but if I try to check his,
I get arrested”. [ Laughter and applause ] But somehow — somehow, that wasn’t even
the most disconcerting thing about that tweet. It’s that Trump tweeted it
at 3:14 A.M. Why is the president
of the United States up at 3:00 in the morning tweeting insults
about a news network? If he’s having trouble sleeping, maybe he should try taking whatever medication
Lou Dobbs was on. [ Laughter ] So, right-wing pundits, Fox News,
and the president himself spent days floating the theory that the bombs
were a false flag, but then when an arrest
was actually made, it turned out the only flag
the suspect was waving was a MAGA flag. -The person arrested today in Plantation, Florida, is Cesar Sayoc. 56 years old. -His Twitter feed showing him
driving to Trump rallies, hosting crowd chants
attacking CNN… [ Chanting ] …cheering the president on
in this selfie video, another recorded
as the president spoke. -This morning, the FBI seized
this white van owned by Sayoc that was covered
with pro-Trump stickers. -This is his van. It is plastered with photos
of President Trump and Vice President Pence. It shows pictures
of former President Obama and Hillary Clinton, and it includes a sticker that is critical of CNN. -Man, I didn’t think it
was possible to make a white van
even creepier, but he did it. And yet, even after we found out that the suspect
was a Trump fan, the president and his allies blamed
the recent spate of violence on both sides. -Everyone has their own style, and frankly, people
on both sides of the aisle use strong language
about our political differences. -America is polarized.
No doubt about it. -I mean, people are dug in
on both sides. -Angry obsessives are dangerous,
and they’re in both fringes. -I would love to see the stuff
dial back on both sides. -It’s not both sides. Only one side is repeating
deranged conspiracy theories accusing Democrats
of orchestrating an immigrant invasion, calling the press
the enemy of the people, and encouraging violence. Trump literally reenacted
a body slam against a reporter at one of his rallies. Bernie Sanders
paused one of his rallies when a bird
landed on his podium. -Now, you see, this little bird
doesn’t know it. Oh —
[ Cheers ] -If that bird had landed
on Trump’s podium, it would have ended up
in a bucket. [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] Also — Also, can I just ask why is
Anthony Scaramucci still on TV? If you’re an ex-Trump aide, you shouldn’t get more time
commenting on the White House than you had working inside
the White House. Scaramucci should have
been on TV for nine days max and then gone back
to what he was doing before, parking BMWs at Caesar’s Palace. There’s no use in waiting for moral leadership
from a president who is so obviously unwilling
to provide it. The only option is to vote
for people who will, and maybe while we’re at it, we can elect some people
who know how to use an umbrella. This has been “A Closer Look”. [ Cheers and applause ]

  2. Dude, a bombing wouldn't make the Republicans look any worse than they already are. The damage they have done is far more than any bomb can do.

  3. Don't you dare compare Frankenstein's Monster to such a horrible person. The monster was an honorable man. How dare you say such a thing!

  4. Can't work an umbrella? Too high tech? Guess they don't teach that at Trump U. Remember, he is the smartest president ever? All the other Leaders World wide just got lucky with their umbrellas.

  5. It seems that so many people prescribe to tribal politics, and that media on BOTH SIDES support the division.
    I have found that any person who does not fully embrace the ideas of the far right or far left exclusively, will be an enemy to both.
    This is the birth of extremism in the United States, and the death of individualism.
    I would encourage any person that cares for their fellow Americans to occasionally abandon their affiliation and partisan talking points to speak of the potential outcomes of our methods instead.
    Does anybody wonder why we are more polarized and divided than we were 10 years ago? This is because racism, sexism, and unfounded prejudice are now institutional, not so much individual. Racist learn to be racist from their peers and thier educational institutions now, not their grandparents.
    Racism a subjective, and does not exist outside of human creation.
    I see that racism, sexism, and prejudice in general on a daily basis. It exists, it is very real, and the power to stop it lies with the individual, not the collective.
    I do have faith that people will start to think for themselves instead of following the masses that are so impulsive, easily influenced, and easily misdirected.
    Act as an idividual, to be treated as an individual. Stand for what you believe in, but abandon your tribe and adopt common sense.
    People do not choose their group based on values any more, they AQUIRE their values from the group.
    Do all individuals on the far right or left truly believe all of the ideas that their group promotes, and none of the other group with no overlap or middle ground at all? What are the chances?
    People…don't be sheep. Do not let extremists shape your ideals.
    Believe in yourself, and make decisions based on your experiences, not tribal trends.
    Most of us are more intelligent and compassionate than we give eachother credit for.
    American individualism is the antidote to toxic tribalism!
    Have faith in yourself!
    Individuals are more sensible than collectives, and are regaining the power as the voice of reason.
    Be your own you!

  6. Republicans cheat to win elections by seeking Russian help, voter supression, mailing bombs, and deliberate lies. Trump's threats to news reporters is government tyranny. The 2nd ammendment right to bear arms is to overthrow government tyranny. Voter supression is government tyranny. Time for a revolution! Remove Trump from office by force.

  7. Trump lies. Facts matter. Compare the Executive branch crime total over the last 53 years. Republicans have had the Presidency for 28 years, with a total of 120 criminal indictments, 89 criminal convictions, and 34 prison sentences. Democrats have had the Presidency for 25 years, with a total of 3 criminal indictments, 1 criminal conviction, and 1 prison sentence.

  8. Did anyone , besides me, notice that the word for DEMS was spelled DIMMS….I know! It was a struggle for all of us…..
    ..Lou Dobbs segment…. I think they are all DIM!!!!!!!

  9. Never forget kids that antifa's behavior is eerily similar to the behavior of the early National Socialist's terror squads called the Brown shirts.

  10. You can't always tell if it's Trump writing his own tweets and the first thing I did when seeing post times was ask; "Is this actually Trump or someone else?" Turns out there are some theories, which doesn't say much as far as internet theories go, that you can spot the ones that aren't trump when they overuse exclamation points, and capitalize random words for emphasis. The Bombs post seems to ring those bells pretty good, along with the odd timing.

    As for seeing Republicans swarm, it's really only depressing when they're couched as human beings when they're doing it. These are every day people, like you or me, grouping together, shutting their eyes and ears, and just regurgitating pure lies and propaganda whilst others are dying. It's like the selfishness of watching maggots eating a corpse. Sure, it's nature. It's still pretty pathetic.

  11. Trump and Lou Dobbs is what you'd get if a brain-damaged, rotting pumpkin fucked a stunt-double for Rush Limbaugh who has sworn to never read a book

  12. Bingo ! He’s so right about fox and Lou and Sean yup ! The communication director or ex- director – Tony that goes on CNN should know better ! He knows the truth ! He should anyway !

  13. The stock market was closed for 6 days after 9/11.

    Or was he lying about having a good friend?

  14. Lazy ass dude, stupid lil man total embarrassment for us all…i swear does he have dreams and thinks it really happen.. freaking toad stool lil dickhead ..idiot

  15. Could it MAYBE be good to just continue the normal agenda?? If Trump had to cancel everytime there is an attack in the US he would be out of work.. get a grip America

  16. trump knows what Cohen knows. He has to think about a 10 year relationship every night before he can try to sleep. He knows what is coming. trump, sleep well! Ha!

  17. TODAY is a million years of accumulaing WISDOM SHAREDa across time from LOVING HAND to BELOVED HAND acros all our countless generatoions. ..But Now, .Like ALL HATE, Tumps's HATE begets only HATE as LIFE DEFENDS the LIFE iit LOVES fromTrump's attacking.

  18. Him not closing the umbrella is a sign of laziness that explains the nonsense that comes out his mouth he's just too lazy to search for words.

  19. What do you expect from guys who defend a Neo Nazi ralley in Charlottesville by saying "both sides are to blame"?

  20. Acts of terrorism take so much hate and energy , so I guess you'll live to lie another day Lou Dobbs.

  21. This is where I wish Robin Williams was alive for trumps presidenecy because his stand up making fun of him would just be absolutely amazing

  22. I love this bird in the bernie Sanders part. The pouting orange thing needs to give more attention to it, like having less attention.

    Birds are nice (while being less harmful).

  23. Omg! Just goes to show Trump Reps are stuuuupid. They cheer loudly…. because Trump's hair is real. They believe in his lies as well.

  24. Oh ffs denounce acts of violence against REPUBLICANS? Get real. It’s sad Democrat’s are so mellow. We need to fight back!

  25. Lmao will you sign his card and donate to trump? Hell. No!! Will you give an opinion and donate? Will you buy his hats? HELL NO!!!

  26. The best way we can establish a baseline for average global temperatures over a long period of time, is by looking at glacial ice core, and seafloor samples. The evidence is quite clear that throughout the 430,000 years of ice core samples, the change in temperature precedes that of CO2, by about 150 to 200 years. This means that CO2 in the past, is not the primary driver of temperature change, but the other way around. So what is the biggest primary driver of temperature? The Sun. By looking at solar records dating back to the 1700's, that records solar activity and sunspots, we have put together models clearly indicating that the solar cycles the Sun goes through, have a direct and significant impact of temperature on the Earth. We are barely above the "baseline" temperature range (established as the average temperature over a period of 420,000 years) because we are beginning an upward trend of warming DUE to increased SOLAR ACTIVITY FOR THE PAST CENTURY. Now, the reason why CO2 lags behind temperature change, is because it takes a long time for oceans to warm up, thereby releasing CO2. When oceans cool due to the solar activity decrease, then CO2 is sequestered in water. Ice core samples show this.
