THERE ARE MORE THAN JUST THE
BANNON REVELATIONS COMING OUT OF THE UPCOMING BOOK BY MICHAEL
WOLFE, THERE IS MORE ABOUT WHAT THE GOAL OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN
MIGHT HAVE BEEN, SO I WOULD LIKE TO GET TO THIS NOW. THIS IS
TALKING ABOUT ELECTION NIGHT –>>EXCEPT OOPS, HE ENDS UP GOING
ON TO ACTUALLY WIN. SO THEY WERE APPARENTLY SHOCKED BY THAT. BUT
IF THEY DIDN’T THINK HE COULD WIN, WHY WAS HE RUNNING? WELL, APPARENTLY –>>HOWEVER, ELECTION DAY CAME,
IT STARTED TO LOOK LIKE HE WAS GOING TO WIN, AND THIS IS
AMAZING –>>WOW. WOW. BUT, LOOK, THINK
ABOUT IT, GUYS. SO, WHY DID I SAY THAT TRUMP DIDN’T WANT TO
RUN? I MAINTAINED THAT FOR YEARS AND YEARS, ALL THE YEARS HE
THREATENED TO RUN. BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE HAD TO GIVE UP HIS
TAX RETURNS. I WAS WRONG ABOUT THAT, IT TURNS OUT HE DIDN’T
HAVE TO. AND THEY CAN’T HAVE THE TAX RETURNS OUT, NOT BECAUSE IT
JUST SHOWS THAT HE DOESN’T HAVE AS MUCH MONEY AS HE CLAIMED, BUT
BECAUSE OF POTENTIAL TIES TO RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS. IS CONFIRMED
BY BOTH ERIC TRUMP AND DONALD TRUMP, JR. THAT THEY HAVE
RECEIVED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS FROM THE RUSSIANS. YOU CAN SAY
THERE ARE VERY FINE PEOPLE WHO ARE RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS — MAYBE
— BUT IF YOU ARE RECEIVING THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY FROM THE
RUSSIANS THERE’S USUALLY SOMETHING THEY ASK FOR IN
RETURN, AND THE ISSUE OF MONEY LAUNDERING HAS COME UP,
SPECIFICALLY IN THIS BOOK. IN THAT SCENARIO, IT TURNS OUT YOU
DON’T HAVE TO GIVE YOUR TAX RETURNS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT,
BUT IF YOU WIN THE PRESIDENCY, ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO BE ABLE
TO SURVIVE FOUR YEARS WITHOUT ANYONE LOOKING AT YOUR TAX
RETURNS? THAT BECOMES REALLY, REALLY UNLIKELY. THEN YOU SIGNED
UP FOR SOMETHING YOU REALLY DIDN’T IMAGINE OR WANT. WHY
WOULDN’T YOU WANT TO BE PRESIDENT? THE ONLY REASON YOU
WOULDN’T WANT TO IS THAT IF YOU ARE, PEOPLE WILL FIND OUT
SOMETHING YOU REALLY, REALLY DON’T WANT THEM TO FIND OUT. IN
FACT YOU’LL FIRE THE HEAD OF THE FBI TO MAKE IT HAPPEN, YOU WILL
THREATENED TO FIRE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO MAKE SURE THEY DON’T
FIND OUT, YOU WILL THREATENED TO FIRE THE SPECIAL COUNSEL TO MAKE
SURE THEY DON’T FIND OUT, ETC. AND MELANIA, THAT’S A REAL SIDE
STORY, THAT’S JUST A LITTLE BIT OF SCHADENFREUDE — BUT TO ME
SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S IN A HOSTAGE VIDEO AND ALL THE
APPEARANCES. THESE ARE MINOR THINGS, BUT SHE’S GOT TO BE
THINKING, I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS. I SIGNED UP TO MARY AND A
DOCTOR’S RICH GUY, NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN THE WHOLE WORLD IS
WATCHING US, AND I KNOW WHAT IS BEHIND THE CURTAIN, AND IT’S NOT
GOOD.>>ANOTHER SECTION SAID THAT ON
INAUGURATION DAY SHE WAS NEARLY IN TEARS TOO, THAT HE WAS ANGRY
AND FIGHTING WITH HER AND ALL THAT. EVEN THOUGH HE HAD THE
BIGGEST CROWD EVER. THERE IS MORE THOUGH. WE TALKED ABOUT
WHETHER HE WANTED TO WIN ANYWAY, AND HE’S ENOUGH OF A NARCISSIST,
ANOTHER THING BANNON CALLED HIM IN THE BOOK, TO RUN JUST BECAUSE
HE THOUGHT IT WOULD BENEFIT HIM, HIS BRAND — BUT THINK ABOUT IF
YOU WERE A REPUBLICAN, HOW COULD THAT IS, THINKING YOU WOULD RUN
AND LOSE TO HILLARY CLINTON JUST TO ENHANCE YOUR BRAND, TAKING
AWAY THE CHANCE SOME OTHER REPUBLICAN HAD. THAT
COLD-BLOODED.>>BUT CAN I JUST SAY, OF
COURSE!>>OF COURSE. IF YOU ACTUALLY
CARED ABOUT THE PARTY, OR THE COUNTRY.>>THE LEAST IMPORTANT
REVELATION IS BANNON CALLING HIM A NARCISSIST. OF COURSE, WE
ALREADY KNEW THAT.>>ANOTHER SECTION –>>[LAUGHTER]
BY THE WAY, NO HE DIDN’T. ASK TRUMP RIGHT NOW WHAT THE
THIRD AMENDMENT IS, HE HAS NO IDEA.>>FOR TRUMP’S SAKE HE REALLY
SHOULD’VE STUCK AROUND AT LEAST TO THE 25TH. OF LITTLE MORE FOR
YOU, I HOPE THIS CAUSES ANOTHER LITTLE FEUD, AND IT WILL BE
TOUGH BECAUSE IT’S HIS FAVORITE CHANNEL EVER –>>OH, THAT’S MURDOCH.>>BUT EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO
HAS MET WITH TRUMP WALKED AWAY SAYING THAT. MEMBER, REX
TILLERSON FAMOUSLY WALKED AWAY AFTER HE SAID WHEN WE MAKE THE
NUCLEAR ARSENAL 10 TIMES THE SIZE, TILLERSON WALKED AWAY
GOING, WHAT A FUCKING MORON. ONE OF TRUMP’S TOP FUNDERS AND
FRIENDS, HE’S A BILLIONAIRE, APPARENTLY BEHIND-THE-SCENES
SAID HE’S NOT ONLY CRAZY BUT STUPID. ANOTHER FRIEND ONCE SAID
LOOK, WE ALL KNOW HE’S A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR. HE’S A GOOD,
FUN GUY TO HANG OUT WITH, YOU JUST DON’T TRUST ANYTHING HE
SAYS. PEOPLE FROM INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE — WHY DO YOU THINK
BOB CORKER, DEEPLY RIGHT-WING REPUBLICAN SENATOR FROM
TENNESSEE WHO VOTED FOR THOSE MONSTROUS TAX CUTS, WHO VOTES
FOR EVERYTHING REPUBLICANS WANT, WHY DO YOU THINK HE CAME OUT AND
SAID PEOPLE INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE ARE WARNING THAT WE ARE IN
A DANGEROUS SITUATION? BECAUSE ANYONE WHO SPENDS A DAY WITH
DONALD FROM WHAT OUT THINKING THAT GUY IS A FUCKING IDIOT, AND
ALL MY GOD, HE’S GOT HIS FINGER ON THE BUTTON, WE HAVE TO GET
HIM OUT OF THERE, THIS IS A DANGER TO THE WORLD.
