Transcript - Not for consumer use. Robot overlords only. Will not be accurate.

Just want to ask you about your skepticism. About the intelligence community. You are getting the presidential daily brief yes only once a week. Well hey I get it when I need it but is that if they're close I get for so they're very good people that are giving me the briefings. And see if something should change from this point immediately call them available on one minute's notice. I don't have to be told you know like a Smart person. How here we go again welcome to come out I got excited is this comment. This was in the delivery but not the message what is saying I think is. I'm never gotten briefings none of us in this room nobody knows what the briefings alike. But I'm sure he probably doesn't need a briefing every day there are people around who work. Listening know what's going on. Who is in the delivery Christian is thick and when he said and everybody took it out of context was actually if you hear that hole. Comment you you know eat a lot of people didn't the first part of it which is the people are delivering this a very Smart people who know what's going on. Most media outlets took it out of context and sad Amaral a Smart person and I don't need them every day. If it changes I mean it was that did soap opera act he did save. So why is it's not like it's. You don't completely out of context that's what you said in the it is sort of what he meant I it's the same as the army navy thing were to me if you like come. You loved this interview emulate my god this is our commander in chief and god help us. Who hasn't had a boss where. It gets really aggravating to do just two goals of the same thing 50000. Times that we re both worked at a place where. It's you had to have those meetings sometimes realize now. You would take bets on what was going to be said because you know exactly what was going to be said in an ever wonder what a waste time jobs that. We know trump has. People guilt famously said in his book that he is it in attention issue. Doesn't want to be told the same things fifty dungy told him that he got it let's go move I. Should understand that I finally where I understand that I mean I I don't really like to be told the same thing over and over again either I totally get where he's coming from there. I think again disks I don't know what briefings are light. I don't know if every day there's something new that comes in to a briefing. So I understand what he's saying their and that. And for me was Justine is who he's delivered it mean Egypt's just should've said you know ice I am there and available for the briefings when I need to be. That's enough the Smart people know when I'm available they know what I need to year. I don't have to be told the same thing and the same words every single day. For the next eight years. Could be eight years eight years. I don't need that but I do say if something should change less are now in the meantime my generals of great being briefed and Mike Pence is being. British police by the way wonderfully very good decisions he's terrific. And then they believe and I think we've also. But if they're gonna come and tell me the exact same thing that they tell me that he doesn't change necessarily know they'll be times where it might change him in the recent very fluid situations are B that not every day but more than that. But I don't need to be told Chris the same thing. Every day every morning seeing words saying nothing has changed. I totally get Ortiz and here. I've only exact a white president needs that or anybody in any business right this is this is good management here which is. I'm not gonna be a megalomaniac. Micro manager I'm going right do when media I will be informed and I need to be informed. But I don't need you justifying your job by having a sit down with me every single day and we go blah blah blah Barley who brought the corn muffins today they're pretty good. He's not interested in that some get on when. I would think that he had other things he could spend his time doing anyway besides doing that Paul isn't rain I'm good morning. All. Good morning. Good morning to all people. Wonderful winter wonderland here how weary you all unlocked. Or. Is it. And it went back. And it. You know that all comments. I think people need to get it on the fact that we don't count but it speech will be president anymore. And it was crappy football and watch all aren't but it will all the outside yeah. When you're watching apple ought to watch backed off you don't. And actually. Do a belt and call it out on or around but. I'd I don't know why people think that president just because he's watch the bad everybody at they would board are just because. You know because the president Herbert. Now. Just that he called a fact that the wedding is not being played very well. That's that means. Support. All ORT you get each issue crap. Now. I'm troubled by that fact it did help people remind people that hey mark I told me that aren't aren't. Lights out but other presidents. And I don't need to find out from lose all the all. Important things that are going on seemingly that's where our current president. You know reports that's where find out everything that's important. ORR I don't see a rescue people well. Unita different drop. So. I don't know I'd just I'd just say this much ado about not. On this. And Charl but they need to alert on answers critics which I think what that your reaction that Caitlin and part I don't need to answer for every two seconds. It's able. You stole it. The lights don't. You know that's. That's not what anybody Cheney decision making it we still need. What he understands implicitly and again this comes from the real world experience which is that. You know there there are people in this world that feel like if we have a meeting then. It must be important and he knows that that's BS. And he knows that there are people there and is gone on forever in the White House that. We meet every day on himself first thing in the morning B is that those seriously retake it. Fine by it. I don't know I was 30% 40% 50% of that is his BS nonsense. And he's say and I don't want any part of that. Is there were a chance to trump is gonna be misinformed on something we're taught how all the information our recent. There's there is absolutely not something serious comes up he's gonna no no and immediately. You're never in that meeting. And then something serious comes up in trump also doesn't need fifty people in a meeting he needs two or three Errol wherever it is. And then they send out to the people. That need to know here's what's gonna happen in years I was gonna. I have to tell you I never in my life thought that Donald Trump would govern in any way but that way because I believe that's how was CEO does govern found a CEO governs by eight. You come to me wean you need me and otherwise the minutia I don't wanna be caught up in it I'm not interested in that. And I actually think that would be a more effective way to be a president to not be caught up in the minutia of every day. So if you know if if there's something to be said for bringing a CEO into that position I would think that's part of you know they are not gonna get caught up in this they're gonna hire good people it's it's quite quite frankly the cabinet positions I think a really important. Really important this go around because I think he is choosing people who will make decisions. I mean he that's that's how he is operated. For all of his life there are people around him who make the decisions and if I'm needed you come to me and I make the ultimate decision. 6172666868. X 8680s attacks are an hits 645 on the WRKO Boston doc on morning Joseph furry. Environment. No president including Richard Nixon has loomed so. Ignorant of facts and disdains back in the way that this president elect does. I mean. It was a Carl Cameron Diaz it's Carl Bernstein I mean that this thing about it I got them. I don't agree with him in that I if I have this I have such a weird it. Love hate thing for Donald Trump because I don't light. That he is. So if he takes not being politically correct to a new level that's what I don't like about him. That's what irritates me so badly about him that way that he talks in that he never takes into account other people. But at the same time I don't think that kind of thing is true fighting big guy could be big guy Smart like a fox. I mean I think this whole. Play and Gooden and all these I think this is all him being much smarter than anybody gives him credit for Sony say the least functioning in a world with no facts. Don't think that's true. I think that. I think that's digging into extreme. That's where I think people are wrong about and that he was with lying that we have not seen before. That's rude I think that's I don't knows though who call right I mean c'mon you read just. Where are we gonna go over this again and we just had a president in an administration. Purposely looked us in the united told us this was about a video. When they knew full well and had not right do with a video and they send their spokesperson out on every. Television news program to say it was about a videos to stop with the we've never seen a line like this before. I don't think anything trumpet is on his close the match. I don't yet be not an office is now. I don't colleague who lying about anything again I think ceased being in this things but I think that's spinning is what politicians do and whether Donald Trump likes her body as a politician at this point. But due to make statements like he's living in a world that's not based in fact I I just think that's in true. That's a true well then that's just someone who doesn't like him. Can hide don't like what he says. But I don't I don't think he's not a Smart person and I don't think that he had never played so what are the facts Carl Bernstein on the Russian acting secure. I don't have Brian Ross on that 18050 yes he sorted the only 735 sir seven hours a vote of thanks so. Goodman just not a horrible what are the facts. If it's true that Russian did indeed hack in try Q and by the way the election. OK with it where I think there's two can I just Burleson I think there's two separate issues here. One is did they hack into is did they try to influence. I think there's two separate things here I think that did they hack well I think they act on a regular basis. I think hacking is going on all the time and I think the United States citizens are naive if you think they're not hacking all the time. The question is did they try to influence. The election that's where we have to stay the evidence is out on that. Soldiers three you've got the first 21 did they act and went through did they try to influence the right and three. Have we not done this for how many years now in this country and is anybody go to acknowledged this fall outrage about the fact that. Do we not trying get involved in a car. We know we act of two who do we have to Germany's phone into rumor Apple's phone at whatever gets you on our summit was right. We packed Netanyahu stuff. A week doing that for their benefits are or are we doing it for our benefit do we not trying to manipulate world events. Every country does of when Barack Obama goes to England in says any press conference. You if you pass breaks it you will be put to the back of the line when it comes to US trade. That is him trying to influence the outcome of an election. And yet he is outraged by this Russian hack things. It's the old lying you know clean up your own backyard or don't tell others what well I don't know if you listen you weren't gonna clean up our backyard happy if our little world order this is what you do now. I mean didn't that's a fact. Hacking occurs at every level every where and you know until somebody comes up with a smarter. System that is that is the reality of today the question becomes eight for me. Was this to influence the election I know if it was to influence the election but. You know I did that that is going to be part of how of the world order now why is it so. That they were trying to influence says seven and one as opposed to just letting the truth be known. Depends on what you believe if it's true that they did back in the Russian excuse me and a Republican. Operatives but. Right. Information in purposely withheld that. Well I think the truth you know I tell you this right that's right they're just holding a portion of Fisher and they're doing it and because you are on strike but. You what. I don't understand why it is that Democrats think. That they would've rather had Donald Trump in that office as opposed to Hillary Clinton because the truth is I think they would rather have Hillary Clinton. Because I think she was going to be a much bigger push over that Donald Trump. I know that the argument from Democrats is that well they did you know they saw him as a guy who's friendly with prudent. I'm going back to the comets are made in the last segment. I think if Putin and I hit it prudent thing to Donald Trump is his friend he needs to wake up. Because I think that Donald Trump is more like a fox and I think he's playing him this is the old adage keep your friends close keep your enemies closer. And I think that's what he's doing so if they were trying to influence because they thought it was going to be a pushover. Horry did know what he's doing I think they're gonna find out they were sadly mistake. All right you know. I would assume pollutants one of these says it just likes to mix it up and cause trouble. So I think that's they would purposely want the US to be in chaos I mean that's just the nature that we would want the same for them orders from. So these together what our way to do it didn't. Then he's gone a dominant OK but I this is not surprising to me is nothing new in the concept that. Somehow Hillary was gonna stand up to this guy or she was gonna get tough for them and trump is going to be in bed with him and now we're good something that we are wary about. She shows a complete lack of understanding of the clintons in the Clinton foundation and now the clintons operate we've been over this 100000 times over them. I think yeah all our shows that a lack of knowledge about Donald Trump I do not think that he's gonna be in bed with him I think he's going to play him. He's got to play like he's his friend. But I don't think he's going to be in bed with him. Any more than I think he's gonna be in bed with anybody else quite frankly I think you're seen with from now when he respects people when he doesn't give that away. It takes a lot to gators back when you have that he will treat you differently than others we saw Giuliani on the plane with Chris Wallace even a Julia is not going to be secretary of state. We see what he said about Mitt Romney after we know he's not pick Romney he apparently does respect Romney for some reason I can't put my finger on it. I think he does respect boot into I think Poland is gonna get a little bit different treatment but I don't know that it's going to be better words or. What it's going to be real city. But just like this deal is just it's going to be sacrifice. I adopt now absolutely not. It's not trump tells you to your phrase I want good deals for this country I believe. And I don't believe he's going to go soft when it comes to Russia because he likes to wouldn't. They may have a more cordial upfront meeting but then when he gets down to brass that executive Simon went on to win so one thing you both are saying right now is trumps response to the CIA which is basically I don't believe view I don't trust you right now. I know it's not his guys. But did the response was a little out there for me I I was upset with trump when I saw that 'cause you don't have to go up and bash the CIA. To then you know bag show your disdain with the report you can dance around that a little bit but he basically said I do not trust the work that you just put one. Think it's interesting. That has come out of this which is sort of an education I think for everyone is the difference between the FBI and the CIA and what they have to come forward with which is why I think he's saying what he's saying. The FBI is looking at this as a process is something that can be prosecuted so they're looking for. Facts that can come out of this investigation. That our our. That they can proof. So and a fraud it's purposes are looking for computer and a person right. And align directly to the Kremlin. Whereas the CIA does everything so overtly and they do it on assumption. Based on what they have gathered and they don't have to have. A name and a direct line to the Kremlin. So that's that you differences here in the FBI while the FBI says yes they believe they're hacking they don't see. That this is because they were trying to influence the selection because they can't tie it back to the Kremlin. 6172666868. You're reaction choose what that they've just said Donald Trump's reaction to it. And do you think that this was hacking. There was done to influence beyond the election six or 72666868659. Of the WRKO boston.com which. When a foreign country interferes in your election and the outcome is in doubt the legitimacy of the government I don't know how we're constitutionally not a lawyer constitutional lawyer. But I'm a deeply disturbed by the fact that the Russians have no fear and I would like to see the evidence that the evidence is clear. I don't see any other way than to have. Voted yes I mean I there's an American citizen. Sometimes beside us and who was Bob Baer did you sit back we're gonna do a redo Amal again. I don't think so Bob sit down strap some would. A slump well. Also have. I'm sorry I swear at you for sharing your napkin with these guys I was taking it back I won that undercut your cup on it I mean I do include tickets. It's just now orange juice did either of you see the Clinton camp's reaction to this stuff over the weekend. And when I say Clinton camp basically mean Jen Palmieri. Yeah. Turkey commenting about anything anymore what each school where he soul crushing are the only words I have. Can barely stand to read the stories. Which by the way I usually sit down and reading and and that's the thing Jason Bay Area and Jay good morning your WRK now. They ignore it. And they don't but they weren't all that we don't hear what they want it's true I mean what do just that the American people getting the truth that that thing. Like I don't know if they're not about being in the actual and a Democrat. Should just missed an institute program that'll mean partly due to getting ridiculous. Though it was. They up gorilla little children really Michael Moore at all and people book you know. That piece of the doubt inaugurations break the target a particular. You know thanks Jake. I'm not like let's not pretend like. Russian did us a favor in that we just want you know information and they gave. Luckily this like balls and Russia's WikiLeaks and Julian Assange now. Yeah if they were doing it in the and they purposely with held it Republican information. Does anybody think that's a good idea no. On the other hand the complexity. Is just laughable that glad that Bob Barrett somebody which sums it up by the way. I'm just not that worked up about it is I just assumed that this is how the world has worked for thirty US III agree I think infect. If it hasn't worked this way for thirty years. It's certainly gonna work this way from this point forward. This is the world order people hack they get into you know. People's emails and computers and everything else. And by the way if you don't give them something you know which goes to what was just said it's just telling the truth if there's nothing out there to give. They're they're not gonna get anything. And I realize that there are there's always going to be issues that you were trying to keep. Under wraps but. You know if the clintons. Gave. A lot of there was a lot to be had there. As usual with that. I mean. Until I you know I go back to that over and over again to just like WikiLeaks. There was a lot to be had there and who spoke was. It's Ers I think I mean DB just said this I think they did do us a favor it did. Listen I'm not part of the CIA some my job to combat this stuff so however I get the information boarded a matter it's it's your job to combat this. So I would not be Europe and I mean that if Hillary Clinton. Won the Electoral College a loss by a couple of million votes the popular vote and she was going to be the next president. And we find out that Russia had put out anti trump stuff. And not put out anything about Hillary you would not be sitting maybe that's true it's absolutely sure that right and it's still not my horse and old job to combat it somebody else I don't even know if it's the truth is I don't even know what they were involved in or not involved this that it exactly that's what is it that we are too. What what is it that we are to attribute to the Russians what what was it. Because now we got all the WikiLeaks is are we to assume that the who are the Russians were behind WikiLeaks. Is that is that the information. Is that we're we're going with this. There's a major rush to judgment on this story but to me the end of the store read. I don't know I maybe I'm just too cynical but I don't think it's a rough. Does anybody think this is the first time. In history of these two countries that Russia is trying to influence the outcome of an election. Maybe they were more successful maybe they weren't here my guess is they weren't it's just that the apoplectic media. Wants that to be true so that they can say Hillary didn't blow it he was taken from our. And by the way. I do agree with Donald Trump in that he said we don't know. Was that the Russians how do we know what the Chinese I'm sure liability here now that's the reality I think every country. He's looking at stuff always in trying to get stopped and when they're able sounding louder what they're doing with the I don't know what. I don't care of them OK so let me ask you this though. Let's take this to the next level. The two this is water under the bridge but. What we have is this bipartisan group that's asking for this in depth investigation of do you support that idea should we be investigating this so as to Han you'll find a solution for future reference. What what what's your feeling about that I think it hurts. To look into this with the idea with the mindset. That we're just trying to prevent. As much hacking as possible for the future so I'd be looking at this in a way that. Cyber you know cyber security issues. But to look at this at a way to say oh look what they did to our election I mean that's water under the bridge it's over it's done. To meet and in the one that the left is all worked up about his trumps common over the weekend that we've got to do something about this early voter. And they are all ticked off about that. I'm I'm all and that should Russian I know let people are gonna get worked up about me saying that the best originality arts or what should we do about this investigation should there be an in depth investigation what bothers you about this should be looking into it for cyber security purposes should be looking into it to question this election I say no. 672666868712. Of the WRK Boston. I think it's two things one is a revenge against Secretary Clinton. Let's remember that Vladimir Putin thinks that she. Intervened in his election parliamentary election in December 2011. And aside as much publicly I've heard him talk about deprive her. To be true don't you. Just. I mean I think Wladimir proven he'll like Hillary Clinton. Mike he's in Boston Mike good morning. Are area you don't break thanks Mike. Yeah I would basically. Looking at the does this op bill now being talked about quietly the the counterintelligence. And disinformation. Act. And because. Is that by out of that is being put through our quietly. I suspect something at hand here. In this that's the story is very. Very dubious nature was won by the Washington Post which. But the outlook or credibility these days. And it is un named unnamed sources. And furthermore. We leases around for. A long time now. And we don't know Edwards code is. And I would like to say that any our current ailment. Of the freedom of speech. And the freedom of the Iraq. It is an American real. I would like ago. What you are about. Thanks Mike. Well. Is this that there would be curtailing freedom of the press it's coming from overseas. Mean and they did you do they have the same rules of the same rights as we would hear in this country. Let's go to Bob bobs in Cambridge Bob good morning. Good morning to human being. About eight source hit a bridge an all time well I think we have a position right now. Where he then got a trap was set up a very in very crazy system you know when he doesn't believe he via. Did I didn't believe in the CIA and alas that telling him up in that he wants to hear. He has told us that he doesn't need to listen. To the daily briefings from the CIA because you know what is the very Smart guy. And now I'm telling us but they would need equipment trump. We support Hillary Clinton an investigation to a Russian hacking into an American election it's something we all means support group catalyst or they'd they'd. Bob where you lose me though it's like wearing a new law like you know that the unabomber administration was ordering people within the CIA to. To write memos into give him briefings that he wanted to do here at the very thing you just ripped from four we know let that happen because we heard it. From the people that will writing those briefings but you're gonna be shown the door if they didn't do that. Let's say you're right. Well we know I'm right that's. OK so it's your right I don't know I don't know the granite on that resupply Ali viewers you really closely. Comcast is what I'm saying is if if that's true it's not acceptable. And whether Obama don't. What is troubling that we at the American people should stand up for what makes this country great the constitution that took about this country held up by may. Mentored it would basically turning. This show went ahead one day and do something else another day this guy out to the quite quoted prop themselves. Promised we're gonna he was gonna get rid of the cold shock for the world of Wall Street as of this world. And now he hadn't had a little bit odd that the people that brought this after the debris called a cold or bankruptcy. But my feeling on it Bob is a while you're right when you say it's unacceptable. I'm not ours has left the bar for me it's the swamp and you know you can drain the swamp boy you want it it's the nature of big government in the major Washington DC where is never gonna stop. That you're gonna have people being told only what they want me here because it's a sick afraid that town and you're not gonna have. A situation where like for example Obama is not doing this and then trump is doing it or trump stop doing. What every administration prior to him. Has done it's the nature of what goes on down there once you get there. And Dave will not change so you're worked up about it Bob I get it at some point you'll come to peace would that's just the way it is well and I. Got to tell you I think it is the way it is I think the difference and Bob what you're gonna see and hear. This administration. Is different than what you've seen and heard in other administrations because the commander in chief himself. Is going to say he's not doing things or doesn't believe things others have done a Covert way. Until that is going to be the difference. You have Dixon who would rather deal with Hillary instead of trump is not us. Well why is that six off. I don't I don't get why people would favor either one of these over the other. I think he just likes to cause trouble and cause chaos he's the Joker from the Batman movie right like. He just likes to see things. Disintegrate but as you may lie he may very well have held a grudge against her. I didn't like what he'd received as what she had done. Doesn't like her because she easily believe that I don't. I don't know oddly like nobody else is a real leanings are toward job because they thought they'd bottom with the uranium deals so. They didn't get to pay to play that they thought they had agreed to and that's why they're so ticked them and now they're trying to that maybe he was Smart of the Betty and he said back in Alaska tell a great date to tip what they were friend. And can cut her off the Khamese audit arm. If that's true that they thought they were getting something that I uranium deal than they did and they got burned. That is what he's doing a I just figure mavericks missed reading proved me and they've just this is one of those stories where you make it what you want to believe rather than what's real. Another work gonna know because I don't know that the ordinary or the FBI can tell us everything we need to now put I I don't put it past Putin though because I do think it's a Smart guy had. I think he's more like a fox as well I think he's you know if he plays this pretty pretty well Mike is in Redding good morning Mike. According human BP well since the Democrats can't have it both ways. Let's not forget Al Gore invented the Internet. Yes he did he was responsible for all this wasn't in my. But it is also done go to John Johnson got very good morning John. Hello Kim I want you've made a great point used to pieces one is did back in get information yet. And two western influence and I think that's a bunch of crap. It's right now seems to me this is what stage three or the cup I can't look balloon lap. First it was the other arrests and campus whatever and the jokes done recount failed and and now the chickens being as saying well the Russians did this. A lot of wind out also this the Russians. Didn't that cut a deal during the Clinton. Administration and outlook Secretary Clinton. Right it secretary state cut a deal for a lot significant amount to bring your uranium yes and what are what about buying by boat. Oil rich countries in the Middle East. Contributing. Hundred million dollars and it is this so much stop arm but it just another. Another round of via. I agree I agree on are recited to wait to see that she didn't lose it was taken from her because that somehow appease as people. If I get them somewhere or go for invited in got to change enemy we're not doing a Renault. And I don't feel like America's been compromised but do you think there should be an investigation should. And I necessarily. Here's what I think I think that if a bipartisan committee comes together there's. Thorough investigation of hacking. And cyber security fine. Again to go in to try to make a determination as to whether there was influence in the election won't with its its water under the bridge at this point. Let's figure out about the cyber hacking. Because that could have file long term repercussions that are not related to our elections but other issues. But but in to investigate specifically. To to make a determination as to whether they. Influencing election I think that's a waste that's a waste it's an easy thing for trump to handle all he should say it is. Look if this guy tried to intercede into our electoral process. On my behalf and had nothing to do with me and he'd better be careful what he wishes for because he isn't getting anywhere we pray when it comes to protecting America's interest by the way. We wanna make it more difficult for anybody not just the Russians but the Chinese the Japanese the Germans the English the assigning these anybody else. To try and get the information from our government so of course we're gonna work on that if an investigation near helped of that fine. But they didn't win this election aidid. And she'd better be careful wishing for me villas in Sudbury bill good morning. Hello good a range. The troubling pod from me is the pot and coach McConnell on the election agreed. Bill which are owed you know single handedly it so party. It traded at her cabinet post or as light. Reject the Russians are right out of it I think I'm reaction Joseph does not being very. Where Lyle. Well I mean I'm no Mitch McConnell and never have been an on again. We don't know what the level of truth to that story is yet to and I guess we'll find out at some point. I guess that's a direct paid a visit that's yeah that's a little more easily determined however let's go to Scott Scots in Winthrop Scott good morning. Went back and pick McCauley OP had a peaceful weekend thank you sir. The you know when you saw Obama sitting there leaning on is me talking to go way back and opt Mikey didn't know it was unlike. Let them election we're going to be all that writing union what you think that he will if if you wanted he would want to have. Hillary rather than it by saying something like that it's just so that makes sense yet here you see them talk and see you on video. I mean if you get a quick tour together I I don't think he is happy that trumped.
