President Trump Admitted to Walter Reed | October 5, 2020 | Hour One
Here's your conservative, not bitter host, Todd Huff. That is right. You're listening to conservative, not bitter talk. I'm your host, Todd Huff email. Email me your thoughts, your questions, your opinions, your adoration and praise will also be accepted, especially on this cold and well, this cold Monday morning. Just gonna be pretty this week. So we'll look past it. But kidding, not kidding. Thank you for joining us. It is a pleasure. Pleasure to be here, you know, so Trump is now home back at the White House after after his covid diagnosis. And he's been working. He had been working from the hospital. It's my understanding that his plan is to work even today from the White House as as well. So, but the left has had a guess over the past couple of days. A mean meltdown of epic proportions, as far as their responses to some of these things regarding President Trump's diagnosis, and there's a lot of examples here. I'm gonna read some tweets that the bon jeanneau show. I'm pulled off of Twitter now these are people on Twitter. These are people on Twitter who have blue checkmarks next to the name these are supposed to be the ones on Twitter who are confirmed. These are the I guess the the leading voices on Twitter right they've got the blue checkmark Rick Wilson here talking about Trump's COVID diagnosis just a mere three days ago. tweeted out I don't think his story is going to have a happy ending. Yeah, that's kinda gross. Here's another guess we'll find out just how close Trump and hope are talking about hope Hicks. If you know what I mean, that was tweeted out on October October 1 after hope Hicks was first diagnosed with COVID. Of course, the only way that this Rachel the doc here. Rachel, the doc can imagine Trump getting COVID is from I guess making out with hope Hicks. I guess that's the insinuation here. George Conway, he failed to protect the country. He couldn't even protect himself, George Conway, his wife, Kellyanne, can you imagine being in that home? I mean, these two folks, these two folks are on completely ends of this, the Trump spectrum. His wife is infected as well. Then there's others. I mean, some of these things are just completely and you've seen some of this. I don't want to go into this too long. I want to actually move into an article that I read. Telling republicans and conservatives it's time to hate them back is what I want to get to this morning. But here's some other ones. I hope he suffers through this and dies as he's losing on election night. Isn't that cute? I hope they die. Wow. Someone responded to that. Wow. Real petty of you, man. You had a chance to be a good person here and take the high road but you didn't disappointing. Just kidding. lol. Hope he dies slow is the tweet there. Here's another blue checkmark liberal on Twitter. Yeah, the irony of Trump catching a disease he let thousands and thousands of people die of is quite delicious. Even if it wasn't vegan, I wouldn't stop eating it. I only ever wanted you to suffer. That's just as again a sampling of the things that we've seen on Twitter. I referenced this on Friday. You've probably seen this. Between now on them. It's just it's really Remarkable it's remarkable For some it's some of these reactions on top of that we have Chris Rock on Saturday Night Live. I don't know which which night This was. I don't watch Saturday Night Live. Apparently no one else does. Watch a Saturday Night Live either. But Chris Rock was apparently I'm queuing this up here Chris law rock was apparently. Well, he was the what he called the host, I guess of Saturday Night Live doing his opening bit his opening jokes, I suppose, talking about President Trump and COVID. And he has this to say President Trump's in a hospital from COVID. And I just want to say My heart goes out to COVID. cheering and clapping for that President Trump is in the hospital with COVID Chris Rock says hilarious stuff. My heart goes out to COVID he says the fans are clapping and cheering. So we have all this sort of stuff going on out there. And it's it's pathetic. It is. I don't know. I don't do I want to say sad? I mean, I guess I guess in one sense. It is. It is sad. I mean, this is this is pathetic, but it's predictable. Oh, I need to say this too. For I forget, had a friend of mine, tweet me yesterday, this will probably be the only NFL news you hear on this program, possibly forever. As you know that the NFL is I mean, just, it's destroying itself for a lot of reasons. And I'm not saying there shouldn't be anything done about concussions and that sort of thing. But it's turned into a league that's about a half a step away from two hand touch which someone like myself is not a not a fan of that. Basically, you can get flagged now for hitting somebody too hard. They don't i don't know what that was, I see a collision a high impact it is through the yellow hanky of someone. Someone has been known to say to stow the hankie out there. And, you know, just to say, I don't know what happened there. Someone hit someone too hard out here, we didn't like that. We're not I mean, I've kind of seen those penalties before. And I'm not talking about the ones to the head, I'm just talking about high impact. The refs throw it and look at each other like what just happened to someone got drilled out here. And we've got to penalize that. So we've got a little bit of that going on and get the kneeling stuff. We just got the over. Everything's political, again, here. Everyone's opinions politically all the time, they can share their political opinions all they want, they can use that stage. But then people like us can choose to not want to watch it because you know what it was for us. We used to watch these things to escape, escape from life, just enjoy things, forget about political tensions, or whatever else was going on in our lives. And now we can't even we can't even do that. But I did say my friend tweeted me out yesterday, that since the NFL realigned back in 2002, the bears and the Colts have played four times. Basically, there's four divisions in each conference. And if you're in different conferences, the culture in the AFC, the bears or the NFC every, every, every year, you play teams from one of the other four conferences. So in presidential election years, 2004 2008 2012 2016 and now 2020, the Colts and the bears have played and they have been 100% correct and predicting 100% correct in predicting who is going to win the presidency. They were four out of four and 2000 for the Colts. So if the Colts when republican wins the presidency, if the bears when a democrat wins the presidency, so 2004 and 2016, the Colts won, and that was that those were the years that bush, George W. Bush won re election 2004 Trump wins in 2016 2008 2012. The Bears win. And Obama, I don't want to talk about that. But Obama was president. So he tweeted me this and I said, You've actually piqued my interest in this game. And it turns out yesterday, the Colts won the game against the bears. I think it was 19 1119 211. So I guess that means, you know, you could put a headline out there today. prediction, that is, you know, a predictor that Is 100% accurate, has now predicted less than a month before the election that Trump will win, that Trump will win this election. And that, of course, is the Colts beating the bears. I feel a little dirty even talking about the NFL now. But there you go. But that is some NFL news that we will at least reference here. So that so we've talked about these bad reactions to President Trump. And we have we have politicians Ilan Omar, Nancy Pelosi, different different folks who say some things about President Trump and his hospitalization and COVID and blaming Trump and all this sort of stuff, Nancy Pelosi trying to say a little bit, a couple of nice things, saying that she's gonna pray for President Trump and all these sorts of things, but cannot help herself to blame him and know that this is just we're just kind of a nasty, nasty times. Right? We had the debate last week, and people are still still reeling from what they watched on that debate stage. And so there's this tension animosity. And as I've as I've said on here, before, we have at this particular point, minus a few exceptions, minus a few exceptions, we're in the midst of a non violent civil war in this country, an ideological civil war in this nation. And it's largely non violent, but not exclusively, non violent. We have some violent components of, of this ideological war that we are fighting and those violent components are, can be found in an Tifa can be found in certain elements of the Black Lives Matter movement, those In addition, who want to co OPT peaceful protests and turn them into riots, which again, is not a I'm still amazed at the number of people who cannot tell the difference between a riot and a protest. I do, from time to time, as a public service announcement, make sure I explain the differences between a riot and protests, which maybe we need to do here again. And there are of course, some, some who are on the Trump side, they go to counter-protest, and sometimes there's clashes between those groups and leftists and an Tifa, and all this sort of stuff. So there's no doubt that this is a tense, tense time. Everything is political, what you eat, what you drink, what you wear, what you watch, everything what you drive, whether or not you think masks are good or helpful or saving humanity or killing off, people left and right, whatever, whatever your opinions thoughts on these things are. It's a it's a very politically volatile time and there's a lot of hatred. There's a lot of hatred from a lot of a lot of people hate those that politically disagree with them. And I want to get into this article. This is an opinion piece in town hall, written by a gentleman named Derek Hunter, he has a radio show somewhere I just it's at the bottom here. I don't have it pulled up. But headline here, he's a republican. And he writes, it's time to hate them back. And we'll talk about what this means when we get back. After this quick timeout, you are listening here to the home of conservative, not bitter talk. I'm your host, Todd Huff back here in just a minute.
Welcome back, I need to clarify something. So Trump did a kind of a meet and greet last night I suppose. He jumped in the back of a of a vehicle there were supporters outside the hospital. Instead of Trump having a rally somewhere else a rally came to him and that's he didn't he didn't leave from there to go home. It's reported that he could go home today. I thought I had seen yesterday he was definitely checking out to there that was the plan so maybe I've if I've sorry for the confusion there I I thought that definitely was was the plan. Now they're saying he could be discharged from the hospital. As early as today. He of course has been in the hospital since late last week where he's been under observation. For covid. And his vitals have been monitored, there's been a report reports that he has taken a steroid treatment as his oxygen levels at one point did drop. I don't know that we know to what, but they did drop a little bit, which is not necessarily it could be a very bad sign. And a very bad thing could also be, you know, just that happens from time to time when folks are dealing with, you know, any illnesses or just temporary issues that their body is is finding, it could be a very bad sign, or it could just be, you know, dealing with, again, depending upon what those levels dropped to which I don't think we we know that but the point is, I don't I don't know about all those details. I don't know. It seems to be unlikely that they would announce he's possibly going to be released today, unless that was the plan. But again, who knows? We're in a little bit of unchartered territory here. But I will say this, there is a lot of I mean, we already talked a little bit about the glee. People will actually one one gentleman, let me get to that real quick. And then we'll look at this article. But one gentleman, I use the word gentleman here very loosely. But one gentleman was, I mean, this is this is in red state.com. He's a reporter for Vanity Fair. These are tweets that went out last let's see, on October 3, Gabriel Sherman, I do not know who Gabriel Sherman is. But Gabriel Sherman? I mean, it seems, I don't know, excited, in a sense that what he was hearing about President Trump now I can't confirm this. These are Gabriel's sources, which could be people talking in Gabriel's head, but this is what the tweet says sources. Trump had heart palpitations on Friday a possible negative side effect of regeneron antibody treatment. This was one of the treatments Trump was given in the hospital in the days that he has been in the hospital for observation and just as a precaution, as he's been diagnosed with covid Gabriel continues here his fever reached 103 and a g7. Ally wonders if Hill appoint Ivanka president and instead of Mike Pence. And then he promotes his article, which is called the spiraling out of control. Then he continues after watching Trump's video, Trump did a video from the White House released it on October I think it was on Friday, Friday or Saturday. Just watch Trump hospital video a second time Gabriel tweets out his breathing is clearly labored. He seems to be leaning on table for support. And there's so much fear in his eyes. So much fear in his eyes, I guess we can play a little bit if you didn't see. This was October 3, about seven in the evening. This was this broke. This is President Trump I'll play just a bit of this and you can decide for yourself at the President's breathing seems labored. If he seems to be. Well, you can't see the video. But you can look this up later, you can determine if he's leaning on the table for support and basically unable to looks like he's an critically critical condition, which is kind of the implication here. But let's look want to begin by thanking all of the incredible medical professionals, the doctors, the nurses, everybody. at Walter Reed Medical Center. I think it's the finest in the world to score the incredible job. They've been doing tremendous. I came here wasn't feeling so well. I feel much better. Now. We're working hard to get me all the way back. I have to be back. Because we still have to make America great again. We've done an awfully good job of that. But we still have steps to go and we have to finish that job. And I'll be back. I think I'll be back soon. And I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started and the way we've been doing the kind of numbers that we've been doing. We've been so proud of it. But this was something that happened and it's happened to millions of people all over the world and I'm fighting for them. Not just in the US. I'm fighting for them all over the world. We're gonna beat this Coronavirus or whatever you want to call it. And we're gonna beat it soundly, so many things have happened. If you look at the therapeutics, which I'm taking right now, some of them and others are coming out soon that are looking like, frankly, they're miracles if you want to know the truth there. So gives you an idea now, journalist saying that that's very labored breathing. looks as though Trump is he sitting down? I don't know what he's even talking about leaning. I guess his elbows are on the table. I don't even know what this Gabriel Sherman, this journalist, journalist, journalist at Vanity Fair reporting that Trump may possibly appoint Ivanka as president instead of pence. That was actually something Gabriel thought was gonna happen. Now, it appears that President Trump could go home as early go back to the White House as early as today Trump's been working there's been pictures of Trump working him is clear, Trump didn't feel well. Am I just where Why is there so much, and I know this is halfway rhetorical. But just as a decent course, now I'm saying words that don't apply to people, but being a decent human being. Why would you want? Why would you cheer for President Trump to be sick and not? Well, people saying that this is karma? Do people realize that this is a disease that is spread around the world? Is Trump responsible? as Trump response hasn't, by the way, spread very much. What proportionally, I guess in Africa, which Some have speculated is because of the treatments and the precautions taken against malaria and the use of hydroxychloroquine. I'm not saying that that's the case. But it is an interesting thing to ponder and to consider. But regardless, regardless, is Trump responsible for the people that are killed in China and Spain and France and Italy. What does the media expect that there would have been not a single case here in spite of that? I mean, it's just it's really silly. You can question the actions taken you can debate whether or not they had an impact as far as you know. You can say that certain actions or lack thereof, you can make the case that it caused more problems, but are they Trump's fault? does say Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio not having anything to do with this this Nancy Pelosi not have anything to do with it when she was calling for people to go out to the what was it the some festival I think in in Chinatown back in February. I mean, part of this is is sensationalized part of this is nothing more than than pure hatred, but the amount of of hatred and vitriol I just I don't understand. I really I don't I mean, I do in one sense, because again, politics to the radical radical radical left, the extreme left, the unhinged left. Politics is their religion, government is their God. And so they want this guy Trump out of here. It's almost like again to a Christian I again, I'm just talking about the radical godless atheist left, I'm not talking about your average democrat or what have you. I'm talking about the radical unhinged, godless atheist left those who are cheering and chanting. And even praying, praying to a God, they don't believe in that this God or this karma takes the life of President Trump or makes him incapable of serving in his capacity as President. This is it's akin to a Christian, a Christian church, having an atheist pastor that's kind of what this is like that. They need their leadership to be in line with their ideological worldview and they can't stomach it. That's someone outside of their ideological worldview is basically hijacked. hijack their, their religion, they can't stand that. And of course, they cheer when they think he might be sick or dying, or whatever the case may be. It's sick. It's despicable. But it doesn't give up seriously and this is what I want to get to planned on starting this site, but it doesn't give us the right what to I really disagree with this article that I want to reference talking about. It being time for us to hate them back. Written by a conservative Republican. Again, his name is Derrick Connor, we'll talk about this. After the break. You're listening here to the home of conservative, not bitter talk. I'm your host Todd Huff back in just a minute.
Welcome back. So I want to reference or talk about this article, this opinion piece this op ed Derrick Turner, he's a running here for Town Hall, but he's a has a radio show I believe in in Maryland headline again, it's time to hate them back I used to be one of those, quote democrats are my opponents, not my enemies and quote type of people, not any more he writes come committed leftist are our enemies, enemies of the country, and just about everything good and just in the world pause i don't disagree with what part of these sentiments there is there are ideas. There are ideas that are the antithesis of the American way. And those ideas are embraced by the radical left. They're embraced. Some are embraced by a whole plethora of Democrats, including sometimes unsuspecting democrats who have accepted some of this jibberish in falsehood, more than they, I think, realize, but so there's definitely their ideas. America is an idea. America is an idea, that idea. Those ideas, I should say, are reflected in our founding documents. And if there are ideas that are contrary to that, that are truly the antithesis of that, then those ideas become the enemy of American. And if some group of people is embracing those ideas, then we can say that they of course, are our political enemies. And that's okay. I mean, again, I just my experience, that there are different types of Democrats and even leftists there's extreme radical, godless, unhinged those who are praying for cheering for the death of the president cheering for bad things and bad karma to return to the President. They're the people who on election night every year or Inauguration Day will turn their fury towards the skies and raw yell at the universe, screaming at the universe. These are the folks that I understand that. But folks, this is not. This is not the average Democrat. It is not maybe in certain places. It is not here where I am, it is not. I've I've encountered angry Democrats. I've encountered angry Republicans, I've got a friend who tells me, he's conservative, but very bitter, very bitter, says in a joking way. But he also kind of means it. So my point here is to say that, of course, people who have ideas that are antithetical the opposite from what we have in that we that had been embodied in the constitution are ideas that are dangerous. In fact, when you take a pledge to defend the constitution, you pledged to defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic, it is absolutely possible. absolutely possible for people to have to be enemies of the Constitution. And as such, we should consider them political enemies and protect what is right. There's also people that even the Bible says woe to those who call evil good. There are lots of people shouldn't say lots, but there's a certain percentage of people who they call evil, good. We see things that are bad, being praised as holy and good. And we see things that are good, being mocked or ridiculed or torn down for whatever reason. The narrative, whatever shape the narrative takes that particular day, so there are I know people who are enemies to the Constitution, I fully acknowledge that I just questioned this notion of Haiti. Yeah, I have this thing about the Bible. When I read that I want everyone hears Krishna, and that's fine. You don't have to be I'm just I'm just articulating my, my thoughts on this. The Bible tells us to love our enemies. It doesn't mean that we have to capitulate. It doesn't mean that we quit fighting, it doesn't mean that we quit trying to promote truth. In fact, I hope, I hope there's a committed way leftists out there today I hope there's a one of these vile out of control Actually, I hope all of them, I hope all of them one day, decide to accept and embrace the truth. That's what I hope. If they don't, it doesn't, I just I have a hard time understanding why there's a need to hate, there's a need to fight, there's a need to defend, there's a need to explain. There's a need to, again, protect this nation, and to fight off ideas and people who are enemies to those foundational principles and ideals, those ideas that made this nation, this shining city on a hill beacon of hope, the place that people flock to or want to flock to from around the world because it is there is a thing called the American dream. And you know what that is, it is simply the place where you can go to be who you were created to be, to pursue your own dreams, desires, all those sorts of things. That's what makes America great. Capitalism freedom, opportunity. People can make it, make their life whatever they want. It's a beautiful thing. And for those who have, I don't know lived here or this is this is our, you know, all that we know. It's hard to wrap our minds around how different it's been for people throughout history, because this is not the status quo. This is different, this is radically different. And that's why it's radically transformed the world. But I don't know the point of deciding to hate to hate. This is what he continues right here. They have hated us. They the radical left, have hated us for decades, but did their best to hide it as much as possible. He's, I don't disagree with that. But he says now they're no longer hiding it. That's not wrong either. What we should accept their hate and, and get it back as hard as we can. This again, we should fight back, we should expose the hatred, we should expose the hypocrisy, we should appeal to those who haven't been overtaken by hate to say this is where that ideology leads. That is not where the ideology of conservatism leads, it is not in my case, or the ideas and principles of Christianity lead as being a follower of Jesus, that's not the path. That's not what we want. It doesn't mean that we cannot fight I just it boggles my mind sometimes to see the difficulty and otherwise smart people to not be able to dissect these things. To not be able to dissect these things and to, to think that the the options are, love them and give them whatever they want or hate them and fight them. Why is that? You can love somebody and fight them that I have absolutely no problem with that. Absolutely no problem with that. Those two things are not mutually exclusive. Those things can of course, exist together. Heck, there's times folks that I have a internal conflict and I fight myself. Does it mean that I cease to, to love myself? Or when I fight with my spouse? Or when I'm unhappy with my children? Of course not. That's not what that means. We can fight without hating Why on earth? Why on earth I mean to write these words, and I again, I don't know this gentleman. This is not personal. I just I have a hard time ideas like this. how's that gonna end up for us? We actually need to find a way to promote the right ideas and do it in a way that de escalates these things when possible. If the only way to de escalate means capitulation. I'm not on board with that. Giving in and, you know, saying whatever you want, That's not at all what I'm saying. And when there's a time to fight, we fight but there's not. There's not this time to simply hate people and to give back hate as hard as we can I think we can fight without saying that I just that to me, that's part of the appeal of conservatism is this idea. This idea that we can all be who we want to be that's really to me at the core of it being free to make our choices. And even though I may I may disagree with an individual's choices, I may even try to persuade them not to make such choices. I'm not gonna hate them. I will fight them to the bitter end if they try to take away my freedom or to try to unravel this nation as founded. These two things are different concepts and ideas, but not in the mind of this author here that we're reading his article this morning, but quick timeout is an order a little bit long this segment you're listening to conservative, not bitter talk, I am your host, Todd Huff. Back in just a minute.
Welcome back, folks, I cannot tell you the number of people that I have had political discussions with people who are diametrically opposed to some of the things that I believe and I can tell you, I can tell you that I've never once found it beneficial to hate them, I just don't, I may really loathe their ideas. And again, I understand that there are some extremely radical folks out there who don't just dislike me, they hate they hate people like us. People like conservatives, people who think like conservatives, people who are Christians, people who are moral or decent, I, I fully understand that and we need to be on the guard with that. We need to understand who we're dealing with. We need to understand that we have to fight and contend with these folks. I understand all of that. But I also understand that there that is not the majority. I am telling you at least here. I can't speak about some of these places that have completely gone berserk. I don't know about Seattle, although I can tell you I've got I've heard from a liberal in Seattle who listens to this program every day. Who doesn't agree but yet, he's not one that I would put into that group. He actually appreciates and he doesn't understand conservatism because it's never been explained to him. All he's been told is that conservatives are racist. You know, they're sexist. They're haters of all things good. They want to keep women barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. And suddenly he comes across a program like this or something else where he understands that that's not really the truth. And some of these folks can be persuaded Why would I hate folks who are open to that I understand hating evil and claim to that which is good but it doesn't mean I have to hate the person and it doesn't mean that they can never have their minds persuaded some of them most of them to that level never will but they'd certainly never will. If we come in with that sort of mentality again, just out of time here talking about this got our comin stop here this segment, gotta comeback and wrap up next. You're listening to conservative, not bitter talk. I'm your host Todd Huff back in just a minute.
Welcome back. So got a wrap up here. But I will tell you this fight for our Republic is not going away we are in. We are entrenched in this battle and persuade others we must die. Everyone is not persuadable. But some are we need to focus on those because folks if we don't, we don't persuade them. We're going to be in a mess here. if things continue to turn more and more radical. I've yet to go out of time hear music telling me it's time to shut up. Have a great day SDG see you tomorrown, take care.
