Thanks for staying with us I'm Laura Ingraham in for Bill O'Reilly and and the Friday's -- Geraldo segment tonight.
Convention floor chaos at the DNC.
In case you missed it things got out of hand a little bit for the downs when they attempted a voice vote.
To amend their party platform to include language that would refer to god get back in the platform and Jerusalem.
All of those delegates.
In favor say I.
All those delegates opposed say no.
I I'll do that one more time.
All those delegates in -- say -- Love those delegates opposed say no.
In the opinion of the chair two thirds of voted in the affirmative the motion is -- not -- And -- left farm has been amended has shown on the screen.
Thank you very much it's.
I can still hear the boos coming from the convention I mean that is -- -- recounts.
Now from New York out -- news anchor -- -- -- there you can see him at 10 PM.
On F and -- Are all now.
I felt really.
Bad for mayor of the year ago he did not -- I actually did I did a terrible position to be yet because it was apparently -- and the teleprompter.
That this thing was gonna get down one -- or not there and -- fix was -- forget got back into the out platform.
What you had people are really ticked off and it was obviously divided there was no it was two thirds voting to reinsert god and I don't know what goes.
Well -- let me I I have to do creek preamble I was very critical of the Republicans I was down in Tampa -- putting in their platform.
Abortion without exemption.
Anti gay marriage amendment to the federal constitution harsh language on immigration I thought that they did not need.
To take those harsh positions because they already -- that vote so why not broaden the tent why not you know broaden the appeal why be so.
I don't -- -- that's about it that it all right and that's what they believe.
Now the Democrats I thought.
Self inflicted a terrible wound on themselves taking the language of got out as in.
God given talent that why in the world -- -- What what extra vote today get by appealing to this.
Two really a secular elite like take god out why do that -- yourself.
And then of course you know the language that Jerusalem's no longer the capital of -- of Israel they just took Jerusalem all references out and it thereby -- had a long conversation professor Alan Dershowitz offended that Jalisco which they critically to win in places like Florida.
So they have that then change the platform -- -- all of the very vehement anti.
Reaction to the platform they drafted.
So they tried to scramble they tried to do it but guess what they were -- at least in the auditorium.
As constituted the audience -- ears they they heard the -- that you and I did Laura and I was pretty clear that they didn't even get a simple majority.
Of -- listed -- the and it was the the tragedy is Michelle Obama had a pretty good speech -- a great speech on Tuesday night then this scandal happens and that's all -- -- -- was talking about -- and I think help retrieved.
The issue but they were stuck -- with a -- on their face.
We're -- I have no idea that maybe next time they should make sure that Jimmy Carter comes at a convention because he's in one of those.
International election observers -- -- and I don't know if nonprofits that give extra dollar thing I -- sort of those meters you know like getting up on the exact answer.
Let let's Monty about cardinal Dolan Anthony -- and gave the benediction at the very end.
Of the the convention -- wrap things up people are streaming out of the arena but.
This is what he -- -- we praise you for the gift of life.
Grant us the courage to defendant.
Life without which no other rights are secure.
We ask your benediction on those waiting to be -- that they may be welcomed and protected.
In power us with your grace.
So that we might resist the temptation.
To replace the moral -- -- idols of our own making.
Artery make those institutions -- you've given us for the nurturing of life and community.
And that prayer he took down two of the pillars of this command center right the U -- abortion on demand and gay marriage and -- -- you're -- you're practicing you're Catholic right.
I don't know I'm only half Catholic and I only -- practice but right now and every cardinals since Spellman and knocking on -- is that cardinal Dolan follows in the great tradition.
A political activism is the most powerful and Catholic in the United States he's the Pope of America in many ways he's very charismatic he's very blunt.
He went to the RNC and he delivered almost the same benediction there out and was roundly criticized by the Democrats is that guess what.
You -- to come to your convention I'll come to your convention.
So we went to the democratic now national convention and he delivered the same benediction and they -- it was you know that the Democrats are saying -- what we have what we ask for what they got what they asked for cardinal Dolan wasn't -- you know life.
The softened his message so he deliver the very very hard.
Anti abortion plank in that I'm benefit our pipeline and I would -- front I -- -- are much effort and that's what then he believes and that's what.
They constituents now Catholic Church believes so a couple of them I appreciate it -- -- thanks so much.
