I I actually Bill O'Reilly saw somebody suggest that you should be honest.
I know I I want to Charlie sheen's hit that guy.
-- really sends a message yeah pardon upon -- yeah.
-- my guys are blood but Ted Bundy on the -- I'm I'm with barely two bit c'mon are key.
That's up a let's talk a little bit about something that's been in the news before we get -- but the president and had his outreach to the Congressional Black Caucus.
And some people were offended with the way in which he said complaining about your 16% unemployment rate it's -- -- I would think about Maxine -- strike the right -- Maxine Waters -- again -- congresswoman.
Yeah he's fed is accused the when -- so that all Tea Party -- -- you go to hell is that.
But let me get this right she was offended that President Obama should stop whining -- a -- but it's -- to tell the party -- would go to love that kind of thinking.
Look -- -- -- -- If -- offended by somebody tell you -- whining.
That's okay but the president wanted gin up his base in this is the -- he tried to do it so no big deal me.
What you try to make some amends when he sat -- with a BT talk show host yesterday let's listen.
The from a sixteen year old kid.
On the south side Chicago OK my dad's gone my mom's working ten hours a day for peanuts policy around his -- there are no help wanted signs and you won't even say.
Look I'm going to help you young African American how when people there.
-- that's not first of all that's not what the foresight and more people are saying all across the country -- -- -- -- we've unheard of for a long time.
And -- the question is how.
Can we make sure that the economy is working for every single person and what's always made this country great is the belief that everybody's got a chance regardless of race regardless of crude.
Well well number one the economy can't work for every single person in this is what these politicians have to stop doing.
Setting up these false hopes because they just not if you're not educated.
You're gonna have a real hard time the telling stat is unemployment for people with college degrees in America four point 5% them and their loans four point 5% of the population of people who have knives and will -- -- All right so let's say everybody who's a college education.
Can pretty much get a job all right and in -- -- serial killer.
So this false thing like -- -- the economy work for every single American this is insane it doesn't work.
But this is what President Obama believes.
So in his quest to make the economy work for every single American they spent five point four trillion dollars in four years.
Bankrupting the rest of the country.
And then -- comes back to say.
All that money -- create new jobs unemployment -- higher.
She American people to sit -- they bought it for the first two years I.
It gave President Obama eighteen months I thought that was fair.
Let's see what is -- economic platform will be and now that we know what doesn't work I expected him to pivot.
President Obama -- all right like Clinton did.
And try something new but instead it's the same all well here here's another half trillion dollars I wanna throw -- in -- going.
If it didn't work the first time why is it gonna work this time and there's -- answer and the other endure untold story is Democrats -- forty that he's yelling at Republicans for not getting behind it.
There's nobody in the house -- way in the senate that says all this is the plan is gonna turn has some of that look be it.
The black caucus wants targeted.
Jobs for African Americans is what they want and President Obama can't give them that because that's.
The rest of the country would say.
-- okay you're gonna take more money and they need is gonna target these people that's not inclusive that's not making the economy work for every single American president can't do that.
So it is a lot of different forces at work against mr.
Let's talk a little bit about something we were talking about it begin the program there's -- -- diversity consultant who says that teachers should if if you're gonna depicted oh which.
Use a witch in a pink hat because a black hat might instill.
Racism in it in a young kid and a while they use white paper it's a staple in schools and Hussein is again a diversity can -- -- fire that -- yeah -- probably just -- the taxpayers paid for right.
They did look great thing about that I think it's insane and I mean it's good.
Good fodder for morning programs I might use -- dumbest of the week possible but nobody takes this kind of stuff seriously and then you know I'm hoping Gretchen is that right that this is in a public study.
On with taxpayer money behind them but here's the thing they do take it seriously -- and that equally quick watched political -- -- come talk about every Thursday that we've watched it.
Creep into our society become the -- not this.
-- you wait I bet any money now that they're gonna start using colored paper instead of just like that we'll take that -- I think white paper will still be in the stores this time next year you write a book branded it a different has this afternoon novel where you enter into literary world with your novel this -- which is going to be movie eventually understand.
You write this book.
Killing Lincoln -- why do you think it's important for us to read this now.
Well because Lincoln is the gold standard for American presence in my opinion far and away the best American press -- And what he did was provided leadership to the country when it was divided okay what kind of country do we have now.
Right track serious problems not nearly what Lincoln had to face -- series serious problems.
So I said to myself I want to write a book -- everybody's gonna -- -- some boring history book are right.
Like a thriller about -- his last two week last two months of Lincoln's life and what he went through and how his leadership.
Came out from his personal suffering to -- Lincoln knew he was gonna be assassinated and he knew it.
He told his wife and other people and -- I saw myself.
Laying on a Gurney a bit.
Dead people weeping in a dream and any -- what's in the last two months two months of Lincoln's life is just a -- Right you have leading grant and the way that played on the soap -- -- -- the backdrop of the end of the civil war but the reason it's it's relevant is we need a president now.
With the leadership qualities of Abraham -- which is what we need to be my next question is what lessons can President Obama learned from reading your book it's not just about President Obama who likes Lincoln by the way -- he'd talk from President Obama is -- going to be actually to be Lincoln bedroom -- be the Gettysburg address that was.
Lincoln -- -- -- -- amazing it's amazing.
No matter who the next president of United States it is they have to put the country above themselves.
They have to stop the ideologue an ideology the craziness.
And say I have to do tough things to get this economy back on track I have to do tough things that means you have to cut.
You people are gonna be mad -- you.
All right but that's what's necessary and that's what Lincoln did blob -- this -- Grant park do you know the president's speech that -- was I -- I don't wanna just win over the 53% of the voted for me what those other people that didn't vote for me.
There is similar to Lincoln would do the instructions he -- grant.
You know you win this war.
I want you to game show compassion I don't want any revenge -- -- and we showed it again.
Is -- that on a much greater schedule the civil war.
The same thing you're saying right now politician should tablet policy -- -- in Lincoln had a vision for the country and that was to win the civil war.
To make sure that slavery never happen again and then -- night.
The south and the north once again and he saw -- he pay for his life but he suffered immensely.
But two day to day what the president's and -- politicians don't do is they don't put their country above themselves.
Half the stuff we hear politicians from both parties say we know is.
The -- it's not gonna have to we know when president -- economy the economy work for every single American.
That's impossible it's not gonna happen if you -- an alcoholic or heroin addict the economy's not gonna work for -- okay.
We need somebody like Lincoln who basically still hold the truth -- Abraham Lincoln was most hated man in America.
They hated him both in the south obvious reasons and in the north a lot of people hated Abraham link.
Because he basically told them the truth.
And that's -- -- you think the President Obama in his mind potentially might think he's acting.
As absolutely good what can't admire him I think I've never ever.
Said that President Obama didn't have the country's best intentions at heart.
The problem is.
His strategy isn't working it's not.
Working this -- -- -- a socialistic nation we can't be a nanny state.
The engine out of our economy is driven by the private sector we can't over regulated and you've got to stop -- the fossil fuel.
Bashing because we don't have an alternative.
All of these things are facts that the president for some reason doesn't acknowledge so you're a brand new book killing Lincoln not only a historical accountable was going on in the two months leading up to the assassination but also.
A plea for somebody to step up to -- well it's an example -- -- -- but the real reason I wrote this book was because I know most people don't read history books.
And they certainly don't teach it in school and I mean I'm a history major I got a history degree I taught history I didn't know ninety -- -- -- You didn't know what right apps it's it's fascinating bright what I tell you about Lincoln what actually happened to him.
Personal -- get really might -- down to it all right he's married to this that the other thing I had no idea both both.
I mean he was a racist he almost got away when -- he almost got away.
So that's where the -- to everybody could read it including American children who desperately need to know about it violently.
All right there it is called killing Lincoln -- by that -- sitting right here in the -- -- Bill O'Reilly who will be on TV exactly.
Eleven hours and 45 minutes I and I can't wait you look at.
They -- if.
