Lou Dobbs welcomes Matt Schlapp and Byron York to a discussion about the first one hundred days and some genuine concerns about the swamp creatures finding their way into positions of power that could compromise the Trump agenda.
As to the accomplishments so far, Schlapp says, “I keep hearing these worry-warts inside the White House who are worried about the judgment of the first 100 days. I think they just need to stop and breathe, because, they’ve forgotten how much they’ve accomplished.”
He says, “They’ve gotten more done with the President’s authority than we’ve seen by any President recently, and today, the swearing in Neal Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, I think a lot of people across the country, they’re just not used to this kind of pace.”
He then asks Byron York about President Trump’s choice to chair the Council of Economic Advisers, Kevin Hassett, as well as the selection of Gary Cohn to head the National Economic Council, saying, “You’ve got outsourcers, off-shorers, the establishment and the elites in these two men alone.”
York points out, “Very heavily pro-immigration as well, so, I think there’s kind of a fundamental problem we’re seeing now as Trump tries to staff up, is that he didn’t have enough loyalists to staff the core of the White House, much less the whole White House, much less the whole executive branch. And there are people coming on board who have fundamental disagreements with some of the things that the President campaigned on. Now, will they operate to enact the President’s vision or will it just result in confusion? We’ve yet to see that but I’m not sure there’s a lot of reason to be confident so far.”
Dobbs expresses his skepticism that the cooperation will be forthcoming, that the limits of integrity within those two men would permit them to faithfully enact the agenda of the President, citing a multitude of methods, including the elimination of the importation of cheap foreign labor, key points Trump was elected on that are in opposition to their nature.
Schlapp points to the Trade Council inside the White House, under Peter Navarro as possibly holding promise in thwarting the negative implications of putting open borders globalists into such key positions inside the government policy leadership. Schlapp assures the audience that President Trump is a smart guy who isn’t going to be bamboozled, that he knows who got him there and he’s not going to betray us. Having said that, he acknowledges that “some of these staff decisions do make you scratch your head.”
Dobbs addresses the instructions given to Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner to “work it out,” saying, “A thirty-six year old, I’m going to be kind about this. This is a man with very little experience and with significantly wealthy friends, who have been assisting him with the family money that he’s had in business. I mean, this is, we’re not talking about the archangel of Einstein here, if I can collide there a bit with the religious metaphor. I mean, what in the world is this going on in this White House?”
York admits, “I’m a little baffled as well, by this rise, by this increase in size of the Jared Kushner portfolio.” An exasperated Dobbs points out, “Trump was brought in to be disruptive,” pointing to the establishment figures who are “trying to smooth things out. It is a dynamic and a conflict that should be creative in result, it would be horrible if it’s allowed to become something other than creative and productive.”
It seems the swamp rats have found their way to the cheese.
