And right now Donald Trump is here and there is blood on the floor Donald Trump -- headlining a brutal verbal boxing match and governor Mitt Romney is betting on the Donald.
-- at the center of a new fight in the presidential race here is Donald Trump.
-- -- -- -- -- -- I have a lot of things I -- -- you not -- one that's really electrifying everybody -- get to that one of the second but first wanna talk about tonight's event -- the government -- it's in Vegas this fund -- makes any particular reason.
Well I think it really represents something if you remember what -- Obama came out very very negative to Nevada and and -- Los Vegas and it was a terrible thing and it really had a huge impact of a negative impact don't go to Las Vegas and it was a disaster as.
I don't know why in particular.
This location was just it wasn't chosen by -- but.
It does represent lots of jobs that industry the tourism industry.
And I think it's probably a very appropriate place we have a very very successfully -- And it's really something I think it's going to be very special.
But note that database -- been particularly hurt by the -- downturn of the job marketer of that effect Las Vegas last in March at a twelve point 4% unemployment rate which is.
Above the national average and there's no secret that -- -- -- -- particular has been hit hard so I wondered if that was that particular theme but apparently now.
Badly hit when the president came out and said you know don't go there.
And I will tell you that had a very very negative impact on Las Vegas and Nevada and -- -- was a pretty shameful thing I think can.
He's been tried to recover but he has never really recovered from.
What is -- Money to be had in Vegas for a fund raiser -- everybody's heard -- I guess there is some big high rollers but.
Tell me we know how much money expect to get tonight.
Well where they're raised a lot of money tonight millions and I think it's going to be a terrific thing I think it's also going to be.
Really very helpful to a person is -- very very fine -- -- very good person.
Eight what is going to be a wonderful candidate and a fantastic president.
Like -- slice is a fantastic person in a lot of nice people in this country but.
-- it is that's not a reason to vote for somebody out.
So by the data as is absolutely true but I've just gotten to like them over a period of time.
I like what he stands were like his -- -- like what he represents I like very much the fact that.
He understands what's what China is doing to this country understands what OPEC is doing to this country there are really really.
Hurting us badly and I think that you know more than anybody else Mitt Romney understands that.
I do you understand say doesn't really do about everything he made it very plain in a sound -- -- Where you said that they doesn't agree with everybody supports so many doesn't expect they're -- supports and agree with him.
So let me turn of this sort of the electrifying issue and -- this whole issue Bob -- -- you and I've disagreed about this in the past I assume that -- governor Romney has as well.
What has brought this back up on the radar screen this -- very sound for allow.
-- wasn't brought up by -- it was brought up by somebody releasing a statement.
From the 1990s.
By Barack Obama when he was not even -- -- in terms of the presidency.
And strongly stated that he was born in Kenya and -- -- -- in Indonesia's so after that came out.
-- -- bride -- and some others.
So did actually a pretty good job on it I must tell you but -- that came out everybody started calling me and I gave my two cents -- -- I've.
Always felt that there were a lot of -- in this whole situation but you may that's they've been himself and the publisher rather that he wrote it down and -- It was a it was going to be part of a brochure to sell abroad.
That's pretty strong statement and I was made by somebody that wasn't running for president.
And probably had no intention of ever running for president -- I think it was probably a very honest statement.
I well yes I'm not a new and I disagree about it and recently there was a fuss about whether or not -- president Bob would be on the and about I think in Arizona and there was another sort of round that preceded this business about.
About the brochure and and Hawaii apparently convinced Arizona.
If there is on -- any doubt about at least represent him that he was born in the United States does debt is still not satisfied I mean what is today you watch for it to be satisfied.
It's got -- committee has nothing to do it -- but the factors that he wasn't it that are allowed to run for president he's not -- -- debate the president.
So this is not up to me this is something they came out last week people.
Well to me about it I gave my two cents.
There's a lot of questions as to the authenticity of the birth certificate.
You couldn't believe it -- you don't have to believe it but certainly there are many many questions you bet people when you show.
You've heard people there are many many questions -- to that.
And we're just got to see where the chips spell -- -- all I can tell you.
That this is not -- -- to dispel what he says that President Obama like this is getting very close dom it is just not dumplings that.
He enjoys with all of that being said I think it's much more important at this point to talk about.
What's going on with.
Protect what's going on with China what's going on with virtually every country in the world that it -- ripping the United States.
And make -- it to a point where.
We can in many cases -- Properly function we have sixteen trillion in debt soon debate.
And we have to do something about it.
And I would much prefer that you noticed because that don't get this many times I would much prefer disgusting that -- discussing anything else and that's also.
But see I think though that that campaign that the President Obama campaign actually.
-- is that this.
Issue gets up and gets pinned TO -- -- you do it your iPod what I democratic right do you.
Very good thing they released a statement downed Stephanie Cutter who is the who is a deputy campaign manager.
Just released a very strong statement.
Referring to you as a dad talking about disgraceful conspiracy theories demonstrate your lack of moral leadership collier -- and -- and that the governor Romney as though.
Is though because you said at that it's Penn dot governor Romney because you have you hold the fund raiser.
Yeah I totally disagree I think they hate it I think they don't like it at all and what they're doing is saying -- -- -- and frankly I think they hate this subject.
And I you know I actually sort of semi know for a fact that they -- this subject this is not a subject that they want -- now.
Yeah I don't care if if they want it if if you think the more important job is OPEC.
And jobs and China.
Every single time we get so this distraction where we get into this sort of name calling on both sides and I and I saw the -- side -- the the -- with Wolf -- they had on CNN.
Every time we get into that we're not talking about OPEC we're not talking about jobs we're not talking about China where we're doing all -- name calling.
But that's because you do and well put ratings are just the tiny fraction of yours you'll be happy to -- but that's because you know and everybody.
One -- bring this up I don't bring it up you didn't call me and USB if I do the show I didn't ask you.
And I said yes I would do the show and frankly if you would have -- brought up the birth certificate authority.
The place of -- I wouldn't be discussing it with -- Every time I speak to you you're every time I speak to evidently get out I would much prefer talking about jobs that have really good at that.
I'd much prefer talking about the economy I'd much prefer -- -- about other nations and what they're doing does.
And how they're hurting us.
And now we can stop that problem but it welfare discredit you brought it up I didn't bring it up.
He indeed I brought it up indeed I have witnessed the those sort of the those showdown at the OK corral you had with Wolf Blitzer.
But is also become a part of the campaign if you've got the deputy campaign manager.
Issuing -- statement where.
Worried they were now the -- the Obama campaign is saying that governor Romney lacks.
Moral leadership in a statement they're not using this whole birth there controversy which is electrifying.
To many people they're not using that as a way to suggest that.
Governor Romney is somehow.
Is the blacks any moral leadership.
I -- very electrifying both ways because I would tell you you have many many many people that they have millions and millions of people.
Totally agree with that I mean give us a unit -- about a rectifying what -- -- -- about both quit.
And also ways yet it is beltway is the Obama people constantly refer to Senator McCain -- Came out and strongly you know did certain things well unfortunately.
That worked -- very well for Obama not very well for Senator McCain unfortunately.
And that's the way it is and they said well why don't you do what Senator McCain did.
Well maybe people should do what Senator McCain bit but again.
-- USB about this -- this skill and frankly.
I would much prefer talking about what to do about.
Lots of different places throughout the world that -- taken advantage of the United States because we are not doing well as the country.
There's no question I brought it up -- I don't dispute that and you and I course we disagree -- this -- -- that they but.
It's not exactly like you know you don't bring it up I've got a tweet from today we say Barack Obama's practically begging Mitt Romney -- -- this place of birth movement.
He is afraid of it for good reason he keep -- Senator John McCain as an example our Senator John McCain lost the election.
Don't let it happen again so you -- so break it bring it up when it Twitter -- it's not like dollar sudden I've been imagined this and pulled it out there.
But that was in response the reporters that I mean other reporters -- risk of the same questions so I have a very large number of Twitter you know -- -- Very large US has -- large -- billions and frankly have people ask speak to discuss certain things.
But in this case reporters bring it up all the time so I was responding to reporters on -- I don't get well I'm an -- are responding to the Contras -- because it is is is somehow morphed from an issue.
And then morphed into a campaign strategy.
-- -- -- I think it's a very good issue for Mitt Romney I actually -- die may be different and again I'm not a politician I'm somebody that done very well -- business.
I understand what life is all about I actually think it's a great issue for Mitt Romney.
But he might not think that way and we certainly can disagree that we don't even talk about that issue by the way we talk about job.
We talk about lots of other things one of the reasons I support him I think is a fine person who also understands China understands OPEC.
And understands what it's gonna take to bring this country back that's really what we talked about we have talked about in this particular issue I don't like to use the word but there.
There's I think it's very condescending to a very important issue but you know I think it's a very condescending terms -- -- really very important issue but we don't talk about that.
Well what what has happened in I mean is sort of the campaign in many ways -- got a -- name -- go back and forth they've got Georgia will referring to was a blow beating -- -- -- But I can tell you George will enjoy -- is probably the most overrated political analyst there is I mean George Willis somebody that I have zero respect for.
I don't think he's very Smart.
And you know if you listen to George will this all started with him.
Six months ago when he said the Republicans are gonna win the election.
And I took offense at that and I disagree with that and if you look at the -- can understand why I would do that because the polls are doing very well -- they're looking very well.
So you -- George well George will is not very high in my list but he understands.
I weight loss of Khalid -- about him today and say he may be the dumbest political commentary all time but -- -- -- debate and -- The most part of what he's ready to think that simple why all Rosie back into the simple -- Rosie back into -- at one point -- -- -- I don't thanks -- -- referred to me again I don't bring people when they when they go let me -- go at them Rosie.
It's jumping with base so I did it against -- -- like to bring me a Pinochet as we got her show it.
It's did a very poor -- -- off the air she's sort of it never never land and she continuously talked about me.
So rather than just turning -- cheek which perhaps they should do right on occasion were referred there.
Well she's in certain -- this uncertain with two as a good bye payments that I -- us -- -- tripled and.
-- -- was in reference used to it I totally respect whether it says something about they.
I say something about that this was in reference to what she's that this was not brought up by and -- I already did shut -- all things and actually this this yeah it is just -- understand she truly wishes she had.
Yeah I've got so many notes in front of -- people -- back and forth calling each other names whether it's think what you being called a shall attend their trying to pin it on rob me this there bombing campaign George will going to blow creating -- Rambus.
Then you've got -- -- seminal losers are hard to keep track it almost feels like word you know we've really gotten off those -- the off the issues about.
Well -- get ready and continuously talk about there's you know I.
And I thought that we were going to be -- about the economy and jobs than other weeks -- what they're doing to us.
And you just don't like this subject and well we did we talked -- -- that for about what.
Twenty seconds that we don't about the rest -- it tire shop but whatever's good for your show is good for me because I happen to think it shows -- Why let me go back to the whole issue of have jobs and the economy.
You know is it -- it is do you see any sort of trending in the right direction is anything that's like gives you served scents like okay this is yet.
I don't think we're doing well as a country I don't think we're creating jobs that think that numbers are false numbers I think the numbers of very bad.
Because if somebody's looking for a job and they give up we take them off the unemployment -- we take.
-- take him -- the numbers so you're not really look at a real numbers when they get it down to eight point to an eight point three.
It's not those are not the real numbers.
And it's almost like you're just creating -- for the sake of creating lists so you know I feel very strongly that unfortunately.
The country is not doing well we're losing jobs to other countries with through lots of different things if you're.
Running a credit card company is very possible that India is -- -- New York credit card person to it if it -- you're talking to somebody from India.
You know we outsource our jobs.
Instead of having him why we can't have a -- this country.
So if you look at what's going if you look at what's going on with respect to our country we are certainly not doing very well.
And when you hear eight point two and eight point 3% -- that's not very good the numbers are worse than that the number could be.
As I was eighteen or 19%.
And I just horrible -- If your -- government run -- elected November sworn in in January I'm curious to what extent and looking to stepping back looking at the economy.
How much it's like an aircraft carrier that it takes so much -- turn Andy I'd get some progress.
Mean how soon if your candidate is sworn in in January will we see the economies show a significant -- says to me think he will do that.
I don't think so I think that -- do a lot of very very powerful things with respect to China we have all the -- people don't know that.
I think they do a lot of very powerful -- with respect to other countries.
And also OPEC and it began to open up energy very quickly look at -- -- -- can be created we have.
We didn't realize there's 234 years -- that we have energy right under our -- we can't get it.
I think -- open up jobs very very rapidly with respect to energy.
Get fuel prices down -- or and that will be a tremendous boon to the -- so I think a lot of things can happen quickly.
I think -- the country with tremendous potential.
Unbelievable potential but we're not using it regulations.
So many different things that are happening are so bad for this country not to mention I taxes so.
You know I I really believe that it can happen quickly the potential of this country is enormous.
If we'd let it go out.
It did let it go and maybe even if we can sort of -- -- some of these.
A news though -- disagreements by the idea -- a -- site is that I'm curious -- you endure all this.
Well -- always like a good fight I think it's a fight that's a very important like it -- some people don't think so but I think it's an important site.
Because you know essentially -- right down to the basics the images if you're not born here he can't be president so it's not like oh gee let's not discussed it but.
A lot of people like me and I think you know this as well as I do millions and millions of people happen to have realistic rather.
I know that a lot of industries let me get back to the -- and what would it take to convince you.
Otherwise -- know that your suspect are you convinced he wasn't born here are you suspicious.
Well I think that it's more likely that he wasn't born here -- I would also say that if you look at is college records they may have system.
Good information -- college records that would say place of birth.
And it will be very interesting to see what happened I think that there was a real killer last week when it was announced that what it was released that.
In the 1990s he said he was born in Kenya I mean he said it is grandmother said it.
His mother didn't spend time in the hospital -- to have babies would get -- spent time about but so you know there are a lot of things that are that are.
Very suspicious and -- big issue big issue to come a long time to release the so called birth certificate.
Didn't do mr.
McCain didn't do it -- Hillary Clinton.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- do whatever is you know very proud of that you know that and I got a lot of credit for that and probably seven scored but I got a lot of credit -- the.
Hypothetically is -- -- that he could produce the that would convince you that he reported wise or some sort of singular document or piece of evidence or any other information you could think that could dead defeat your suspicion or even your thoughts is born elsewhere.
You are good solid proof would be wonderful like so what -- so why they have been able to do that a good salad fruit and retrospective jets -- -- Access group.
I'd take that Q is that -- could -- and thank you got out then that.
Dot dissident thank.
