Need somebody strong Armenia are countries. That can be our country again on the Ellen all the other countries are too excited for the first female president. Well. That's because I've paid out woman of the elderly couple is that correct yeah I haven't heard and you have no disagreement on over there motivate. Married for 3040. Years and they were at the pole and she polls and she was voting for trump and he was voting for Clinton. And he said he thought it was time for a woman to be president and you heard which he says it means he has. I think a lot of voters are gonna go I'm not talk my mom today tomorrow or gloat over and I don't wanna see my mom sad but I'd rather not gravity gun. Rescissions or too excited for the first female president. Well. She's acting. I Jeff Jacoby joins us Jeff file all stars say Gregory yeah I'm glad your hair although I've talked to some of the stuff on the globe today as indefensible you guys column in particular. The we don't but I've mob might three biggest losers and I don't do the obvious but tell me I'm wrong and it is I said one already third Bonderman descending order one is married my biggest losers in the company. You agree you've trumped me but it's trump days to go ahead at its. Look at I have heard your I know what started yet and Albany doubtful. Lola. I guess because obviously with a quick. Quick little thing yet my. My editor last night pulled out a tearsheet or the the newspaper from Election Day day after Election Day 2000. 2000. One. Is that right when them to go 2000 he ultimately 2000 OJ like 2000. And I had record and he Revver and it 2008 when when brought to our problems elected. And and I had done a little list of you know although it's you think of the weeknight for conservatives there are some. Some bright points and one of them was the clintons really won't be going back to the White House. This is field if he had defeated. Horry who were an item already they varnish are hardly that she was planning a tweeting out that Jacoby prophecy. You know what's the returns ray and there are already starting the obamas will be back in the White House because they're talking Michelle all right I guarantee him. Well the clintons really really and really and I are trying to White House. Here at home the locally in Massachusetts I think the Biggest Loser of all. It has nothing to the presidential race and nothing to do with the rhetoric. I started I think the biggest losers of all of the sport kids maker will continue to be stuck in these crappy. Union run schools. And the idea that that was the Biggest Loser on on the apparently goes out going to be great now because all that money's gonna I don't it and it out just what to do yeah I don't understand how there is on the same people who have. Who overflow with sympathy for the chickens. You know don't have an you know they don't have Internet etiquette to rescue the kid to death just to be caged up an overcrowded schools but the chickens got a and it's right there and you know I mean that's how funny would it sojo and ends up and we've got one arm to an awful by the way to. And one farmer it's not a good loser that's the argument around our rate so that in the big picture. Plainly the media is one of these losers I'm very. They never hideous play completely changed it never has there been a a presidential campaign that was so disdainful. Of the media. And that Russo much distinct from the media that couldn't care less about. Things like editorial board endorsements on the rest of it. So it until every. The media became. They and I said this yesterday. But the media was a loser because the media became part of the story vs reporting the story and so they've shown their faces for whom there. And I think it's very unfortunate. Trumpets currently up in New Hampshire was over 650000. Votes count and he's up 35 votes. 35. I what we'll be able to make a difference in them in the presidential race. Although we don't we do have a whole a truly know there aren't any it's going to be one of those where every vote counts this is why he's gonna go vote but got into the there's going to be of the recount all absolutely in the salaries of their keys are little more than pressure was at last count anyway but it's still too close so they're gonna count Merrick Garland Biggest Loser has of yesterday was still going to be Supreme Court justice that's over now. Second Biggest Loser. I'm not gonna say the polls I'm gonna give you a specific poll. W and you are. Two days before the election what do they say Hillary are allowed in out van off stern are allowed then. And pass in opt for. That is dead you can take no hole that they do right now with any sort of credibility when it is that all our off. I let you take it in their Newser. And maybe but that's no the truth is polling is in crisis hikes in on a part about it a lot of a lot of people have written about this. If this system that modern opinion polling. It was built on. Is no longer fights because way to communicate as well he's no well it ain't got the budget deal called land lines and 67%. Of people took the call. Now he almost never get land mines with college CoBiz since that now we have. Another big loser then Quebec Canada yeah are there this is like to a union leader. This is the fourth time they try to stop drop and it couldn't do it it's unreal. Obviously and you know speak as a group like Bjorn a player must be rolling over answered the shape it ordered the entire race eyes Ariza can't just he told congress now things a and it's great to what is now the fourth for the fifth time that it's gone back out toward the two with them. Charlie Baker is their biggest share this I don't agree. Well late I don't know if I that he hates one in the one cause that he put himself on an ad for in took crap for. Got hammered. Every time he is stuck his neck object including within his own party to take control of the house when I committee he's got hammered by you by on the U. On the plane and what's his biggest wins so far I don't I don't of the Charlie Baker has finally does not think there's any wins I don't know that he's the Biggest Loser or the ball. That's a rough night I Biggest Loser in this state for sure he lost potty loss charter schools many laws trump he does a pretty rough tried to it and yet I wonder if he won't be able to have. Come back with. The stand that he took on the charter schools the fact he was willing to stand against unions knowing that he was going up you know going to Edwin. And not have that redemptive and publicity and that the pop up the northeast. It gives the unions video assistant against his own party. So when he does that bailout okay yeah yeah yeah they're eight and there is my third biggest roster and that's the one we're going to be you know at least some of us are going to be and speak about for for months the come. Reagan conservatism is the enormous loser today and I need. Ointment is the vice president big deal I mean that it might be secretaries there what would you say big deal Reagan Democrats Reagan republicanism is that those Reagan republic I was gonna sit tegra is could be a Supreme Court justice for all we know. Do they really Kanye that the OK with me but it would be okay Reagan to go the the Republican Party now has been taken over by the forces of Tron. The forces of trump whatever they are are not Reagan conservatives in so many ways we talked about this field per month month month but some it was trump himself was always on the left side of the scale there of you know few which is it would she. Clearly wasn't but on all kinds of things he was. What it any other country would have been considered mainstream liberal if there you might get it this way the identity of there'd of the Republican Party is. I think it's up for a blow your mind you reviews on this. To make your point is Reagan famously said pared down this wall trumpets and we're gonna put up this wall. And I have no problem is you know right away by the way that does that Jeff. Good capturing of prettier in irregular that the Reagan conservative that you're talking about could not have gotten elected in this country and the if you looked at and hit how he won here. And it's called it earlier said is true this country. Ease. Is centric. Right leaning that that's what it is it's not to the right it's certainly not all the way to pull off. This is it and that is what the Republican Party is at this point. Yeah I agree parties. They're not been for this to get a column on in the course of the campaign parties to change yeah they thought that was changed dramatically. The Democratic Party used to be the mainstay of racial segregation. Of the Ku Klux Klan. Was basically founded as the armed terrorist wing of the Democratic Party parties do go through dramatic changes the Republican Party once upon a time was a very staunch protectionist. Raise the terrorist kind of party was Herbert Hoover I think who signed into law. You know the most infamous. Terrorist act and and help bring on the the of the stock market crack to parties do change. But when that happens there's a shake you know the Whig Party went out of existence because you could figure out what to do about her and I just you question I don't know I don't know. What will happen to people. With that on the within the full of the right who have the kind of political values that you know that a lot of Reagan Republicans did that I certainly did. I don't feel comp I wouldn't feel comfortable being part of a Donald Trump let party. I certainly would feel part. Coca will be part of the Democratic Party right now I think you know I I know party I mean I have been and party formally effort for a couple of decades. And as you know I didn't vote for either of these guys know this is braving intense died which is you know that's. Meaningless in Iraq seven and there's no such thing as the writing in and. Nines that I was that I did it hit. There was such a thing in the 9978. Jacoby table for law and in crow is today's special. What I've that's why it's crow I all of all of law. That Election Day for me it would mean one of the candidates I despise the most was gonna lose. I just to know what to those two kids you have more respect for him today than you do yes that I. Respect yes I wrote the paper today no respect for Hillary Clinton or Donald who had I respect him because the change the government yes you do he worked departed in her down the stretch to change it he brought in band and whenever we're told him don't do how'd that work out he got rid of his campaign manager when someone today it's never been done before how'd that work out this earns you respect it absolutely does you go against the grain do things in government telling you don't do and they work. That's not that's cute that the job television ratings were happy that the I don't know servers back and he's not sure I gotta jump in is we get a break it's an epic. If they added a New York you know boston.com. Got to hope here when this were. I think in two knew each other for years that don't show up they literally talking higher grade I yeah you can do would you just over an hour in I guess I guess it just sets and that now. I think a lot of people. I thought. The. Secretary of state ice age ago I didn't say it secretary Donald Trump as has gross and voters he has had managed to produce a daughter who's his graceful dignified and well spoken and polite as he vodka. May be his administration will be less gross and vulgar than the candidate. While helping felt like something she's yesterday I was watching in the hope that. First my first Oreo that figure like the no good luck on that just watching and they were interviewing. Tomorrow. Prompt so it's Eric's office Justina she. Is now what you watch any crap you know she did not and why did they have her pierce I mean I think she was Elvis still talking with the thing. She just really right she's really articulate. She was very quick to defend him she knew exactly why she was defending him. And she knew it in in very particular terms mean I was impressed with her I thought wow he does have some women around him at. In other. May ninth seven and Kate chick are already at Reagan and trumpet one very important thing in common the ability to inspire people to believe in the American dream. I would add a caveat to that they also understand the cult of personality better than most. An opponent called Reagan culpa personally all I. I don't think Larry era I don't think Reagan would've that would've accepted that but I agree the first absolutely agree with the techsters point. I think they they do. The well it released did both have a certain instinctive tapping into. And who went to a broad swath of feeling out there let's remember that in 1980. People woke up feeling the same way they are feeling this morning I'm sure not clear. You know that the Iranians are ultimately the same way today it dated 1980 only do they don't hostages maybe got to give them home point seven billion back is assign a good good good gesture of of coming together right. By the way. Did you at least like what trump said last night when he said look reverence colonists is historic event. It's only historic if we do what we said we're gonna do we got to get after it now I mean you had dual like I didn't hear again is great audit. But great line. I agree and I think I was saying he's going to break IE. I suspect given how much of what he has said over the course the past sixteen months ended up walking backers blatantly disregarding a contradicting. I wonder how many. Not having these promises are going to be capped. How many of them are going to be totally flipped on their heads and I suspect you know six months finale let's turn out you'd be taking calls from people who were ardent trump supporters. I organization we are all those high value for you bring the ball going up no I don't know I think yeah. It's not possible and it's essays and if you think Arizona went for because they didn't want the wall. Then that all they don't want the war that's got to everybody wants the walls are all in Mexico in some of some way shape or form he's going to be able to say Mexican people you don't got to remember in a country this big and when they're still win as many aces as there are. People vote for candidates. For all kinds of different reasons and there are. I've for example for many people supported trump who. Who would never in their life have taken an anti immigrant position but they work for example really really. Attracted to the idea that Obama thirties to the repeal wary of adding that's an enormous fees by another another degrade. I think treaties and it is people are for him it's there you can't say that the only the right side up global warming and what was your. What was her big issues that people so that's why I'm gravitating to other than this BS thing about a woman asked to be president. But with Hillary of the regular. Truck Mikey today he's on the the American people's side and trade he's on the American people side on immigration careful don't don't be don't be so quick to affiliate your own personal view with you mayor I'm an awesome view. Anybody whose livelihood in this country depends on imports and there are tens of millions of people whose livelihood depends on imports grew. Aren't our would be hurt by any kind of new trade barriers the go to place. Anybody who needs to be able to buy. A consumer products at a reasonable affordable price to be able to walk into target or into you know a Kmart. And and be able to. Pay for the kids. Pants and shoes and and sneakers the by. Would be hurt if that will ever touch my body my ice cream or obamacare if there's a 45% increase in it imports from China that don't. You know that's the other studies like this stuff may play well when you're talking to an audience yelled that's speaking about it once been one way but there's a whole different audience. Did you buy the whole different of the weight equally valid equally. Apt to be hurt by bad policies. I am taking her for something that you pointed out before which again brought to be talking about most of the Republicans cooler in congress are still of the U. You know it's called the old school. You know the traditional Republican pro free trade school there's gonna be you know great big. Rumble over which of those two views prevails but I think it's going to be so we've seen for those were troubled consultants and up to Obama they will not stand up that room. Anyone that's holding out hope that somehow they're gonna block trump and his agenda hidden and angles well I also by Adobe that dogs congress numbers and I mean Armitage zebra Republicans in congress voted unanimously against obamacare they they don't vote how to type and this was a talking point against them. But the Democrats confusing. How many times were measures introduced in the house and the senate to repeal obamacare or to weaken it in some way. To think they ever get that they voted on bond at the last time now with the times I thought it was a mistake for for a Garland not to get hearings but there's another example of Republicans in the senate refusing to do what Obama wanted I think it's I think the costs are Obama and you'll hear about that the who's you know he was just planning game there you know maybe. He absolutely well. I think he was playing the game there but I think this blame game that he thought would be resolved by her being present on almost everything admitted that he thought he thought it would today when she was presidential act. He was gonna get soaked to what extent it was. To what extent do we think that Obama and Obama ism. Is a big loser every night here extensively bearing I am at the review that's that's my instinct to go look just let me just make the argument the other side. Rub to troop presence almost never. Suit C a a successor from the party. Obama operate Obama's approval numbers is job approval numbers now have been at some of the highest rates in recent months but they've been his entire presidency. EU could certainly not be accused by Democrats or by the left of not having done everything he could to try to get Hillary Clinton elected. So if you if you're putting those on the table. He lets you go watch the White House as a loser yes you specifically asked for a third term a lot of video that they'll they'll I don't necessarily bad for our ask lately though. Keep himself out that they remembered the Clinton that campaign you know that's why you know Arkansas because he and having Golan until like two days before disease like amending right. And that was one of the big mistake you know am I that never came in for. Well for that matter Reagan didn't campaign that much for bush I mean brick it was just popular someone massive attacks on adrenaline Reagan was you know elderly and we really could 97 miles an out of the oldest president. UA you'll under the hood ignites and I hooted in approval ratings for Obama WM UR. I. Well yeah there's the question I mean I don't. I haven't heard anybody question whether the approval whether those poll with a those particular pools are to a fault but who knows maybe Obama care's going to be repealed think about that during the break. They before we go to the break we kicked him out of the studio what was the reaction when they finally called in the middle and I saw you here you were in the building. Who took the worst. And I'm I was desperately try to sell as Michael Cohen here from Sydney Poitier guess he doesn't work in the building I've actually been laid eyes on. I hear. If he was the building huge columns of asking what he thinks. I you know I did not hear. I didn't see blood dripping of the on the floors on the linoleum. From slit wrist or anything like come from I I just think if from slit wrists. I'm not I'm aware but I think goes a lot of stunned. Stunned horror. 844 on the WRQ Boston. Exe and others must fail to famous court of gore and if it's back part is more important to me much more revel in the misery of others in the success that I'm apart over. That my side gathered here are sick and twisted person in a -- that blacks IT are exciting we're title shot Freud is great to all that stuff so they set this thing up last night at the Javits Center where the glass ceilings literally there and you know she's gonna point to it and they're gonna have some sort of thing happen to it and she's gonna save forever more. And I had the she didn't have got to admit it was it was it was shrewd thinking at my place but it didn't and had a good laugh yeah let's talk about. Happened all right I just don't it would be great if they accidentally set off one of those confetti cannons and it cracked the glass ceiling anyway that one of every paper that tip it. Jeopardy you know he's talking about this they put. If you sign that they put the set of victories. Mean there's no two ways about it he spent a fortune. And apparently we are told by Brad now from NBC news earlier this morning that. As soon as they made the announcement there will be no speech please turn to iron and easy. Sell that. It's. What the heck we usually don't just mean did you hear this usually hear that. We doing here. Desperately try to write something don't you think that tomorrow's event with the white KG does the job something you or say if you're into reality TV like I know you larger car and then I drove home when I went to bed. And I was just told me you're coming to you know I asked if I was expected here. And he said well you know you'll be tutored displayed so you don't have to you don't want to. Don't you understand John Friday and that tomorrow's event at the White House where the president has to meet the president elect. What that would have been with Hillary would have been absolutely nauseating what's going to be withdrawal is absolutely fascinate I I would I would love to be at four. That the plan now. And think about the inauguration I don't yet know there's there's a whole lot of Psycho drama that I am. That's of interest have you wrapped your head around the fact that Maloney trump is going to be floated its. She is going to be representing this country. And Maxwell sees no Dolly Madison. Uploaded Jackie O I mean I don't know actually does it is and real president and have we ever saw Jackie O noon in the front page of the New York Post. It's a new day to day I. Hours she is an Indy spongy. And all around the world. To leave a beautiful life to be six safe and secure how many floors and have a meeting and her love how many in and a. Accent like I now I have to say you have to as you know I you know I'm I'm a midwesterner. I grew up pitting people speaking beat up on daddy and accent in Cleveland which is the biggest Hungarian population CD in the whole world outside the Budapest so for me it's something very exciting very appealing studying the White House itself. We do most and even in the bad enough going to have everything lady who speaks of the Slovenian accent. By the way it's Slovenia this morning their Lovett are suddenly they're claiming to know she season. Know how to punish you there. Are you an audio and aren't your homeland. A home state was right on the night that they're for oil in there weren't on a night fed use up point I wished that the way those returns were coming in I was shocked and I'm still shocked at the margin he pulled there I mean. Thinking about and they get loud as he came out on the stage but he did not want to deal with though with the with the seniors in this and athletes as endorsers. I would never. Heard immediate task it would never occur to LeBron James to ask me for advice on basketball or Tom Brady to ask me for advice on football. Why they think I would be interested in their advice on piled it is it's where I say this I don't. If I think all the time. And it doesn't it but it's apparently doesn't work what difference this time around when he jacket Brady still undefeated apparently yeah Dave here's why anybody ask you. We know those campaigns ask you you're right they're different than doesn't have a long and that's why it's like if you walk into a cancer ward no one cares but it Tom Brady walks in the kid might get better it just is somehow what happens Tim Tebow saved that guy. And in the Pacific Coast League or the Arizona League willing to give because he. But there's something about celebrity I mean that was approved it last night it was not improving don't know why I'm so I don't know. And he was the celebrity well thank you but celebrities came out for I mean I'm Janet dynamic did I made a great run check into a new waited well. Georgians got to play new credit Belichick are two of the most hated people. In this country outside of new and auto they're celebrity is not what that it. And then when it but they do good at the last possible second to the New York scales callers were so great on this and they called it our techsters continue to be great only John Quincy Adams wife whose foreign born if you didn't know very good actress and she's exactly new englanders and listen anymore and yeah I mean c'mon. She had a horrible light by the way truck. Several of her kids died horrible deaths on our wings the at least so yes we're now. John Adams Quincy Adams does Jon what we mean yeah selling that well clearly adams' siblings I know I had terrible when his kids Dick he was in Russia at the age of fourteen basically on the ambassador she was in England with kid after kid dying. In a sense like lot like dizzy again and now all of really help olds are what are they don't know they have that there was it was tough bringing up kids back then it was hard you had sick tunnel with Ford survive just now laws that. She got yet to outline I. Think almost all of Thomas Jefferson's children. His wife died and I can almost all of his children died before he was even the white it's at it's actually. Shocking how young president and head children who have died Calvin Coolidge his son. At this hour it's great wonderful you know teenager playing tennis. On the on the White House tennis courts his father had become president when you have what Harding died. Coolidge was president he's so he's filling up parties term he's running for re for an election in his own right. And he would have cruising to victory and becoming you know an elect but shortly before the election his son gets a blister playing tennis but on the White House tennis courts. Get some. Which goes septa ceemea rang and ends up dying within two days. And and work the Coolidge is though the whole victory was so completely aware of the by the death percent. I'm Abraham he had Hillary's guy would depend Abraham Lincoln and and very tightly as I can get their children died. And and won what who didn't was at the was present at the assassination. Of three presidents he was. On hand when his father was assassinated on hand when the Garfield was assassinated and on hand when. Who has given McKinley was assassinated what these shocking coincidence that is coincidences in American history. We knew there would you didn't want to be the president can. Or the president. Or. Donald Trump is today and Jeff Jacoby is really having trouble rappers around and not listen that's democracy I do exactly that I repeat what I said all along and coming in today. I he had been been insisting all along that from meet the great thing about Election Day would be that one of the two worst candidates in my estimation in presidential history was gonna go down to defeat. And one of the worst things that the other world when the White House both of those came up let me ask both of those were always going to let me ask you this he has. Today do you accept that he will be and he is your president barring some you know some kind of do you have sent him as your president that you re an in my column that's exactly the rubble I've been up all night. You work here at 1 of the morning like that that's a day I was at home update you went off today and he can't help yeah. You accept any right when I wrote yesterday was that although I would then never I front I sell with a burger place you guys hundred free burgers. I don't I. They taste it hurt and he tasted. He wrote it all the talk. Go go there and it was a tough one I don't know I I I you know vetoed a hamburger ever were or what would budget I think I wrote it it's a I don't until upon lying there's at least a shorter version of the paper to the but I wrote that although I was and and and ardently. NT that you'll never trump and never Clinton all along. I'm not going to be one of these people who just stays in bitter and zealous for average says he will never be my president and that you know come hell or high water I was prepared and and prepared to say that the you know whoever wins election is going to be my average time I'll leave your it is mine tonight Jeff just go back to Cuba. Home. Is that now your fitness obvious when I don't room. Jeff Jacoby Tommy begged you always find you guys. Eight and a WRKO busted back.
